I sit and write this choked up with what is promising to be a stinker of a cold. I have a cup of Lemsip by my side made up in my new heat sensitive pac man mug. Even that isn’t cheering me up today!
Lemsip is a weird concoction of what I think of as powdered lemon and paracetamol. I never know whether it really makes a difference or not. After drinking, I can’t taste anything for a good hour or so afterwards. Having now read the ingredients and wishing I hadn’t I find myself wondering if I’d be better eating an orange and just taking a paracetamol in order to ease the headache and speed up recovery. At least that way my taste buds will still be in operation.
In terms of making a difference it’s one of those weird catch 22 situations. How would I feel if I hadn’t taken my cup of citric acid. Would I feel the same or am I reaping the benefits as I type and take part in the @writing101 challenge.
