We've always laughed at the stupid head on commercials, and even made up our own product for hemorrhoids: ASS ON APPLY DIRECTLY WHERE IT HURTS!
Well, since we painted the living room on Thanksgiving weekend my neck had been hurting on one side and then was hurting all across the back of it a few weeks later. I was having a hard time sleeping because every time I moved I was waking up in pain. I couldn't turn my neck so it was really interesting trying to drive to the store and look to see if any traffic was coming. After a few days of extreme pain and crankiness we went to get something, anything, to try and get rid of some of the pain. We got ACTIVON APPLY DIRECTLY WHERE IT HURTS and some Bayer Back and Body pain pills. I don't know if it was the combination of the two or the activon or the bayer, but by the next morning I was virtually pain free.
However, our big cat Pepper is fascinated by anything menthol smelling and was up on the back of the couch trying to lick this stuff off of my neck. That's a weird feeling having this kitty mouth and tongue right up against your hair sniffing and licking. She also likes bag balm which I put on my feet at bedtime. She can smell it two rooms away and comes running.
So, next time you have neck or body pain try ACTIVON and apply it directly where it hurts! It works, but Pepper may come and try to lick you.
On another note, we went grocery shopping today trying to think of something to fix for our little two of us Christmas dinner. I was suggesting we just go to Denny's but we finally settled on a small ham and some ready to go mashed potatoes and green bean casserole. Vons makes these tubs of side dishes that are really good and just perfect for me, the lazy cook. I keep telling Keith that maybe I'll like to cook again when we finally have a kitchen floor.
We were coming out of the store and saw this girl wearing pink sweatpants that had the word 'pink' in letters across her bottom. I didn't know these pants were still in style, but I had a great idea for all of us big girls. Pants that say 'WIDE LOAD' or 'FAT ASS' across your bottom! I'd wear them!
And, every time we come home on interstate 5 through Castaic, there is a huge billboard for a hotel that advertises 'free WiFi'. I don't know what WiFi is since I am technologically challenged, but every time I see that billboard I read it as 'free wife'. So I have these visions of traveling salesmen checking into the hotel and getting their free wife for the evening. She could nag him all evening and he would feel like he had never left home!
