The thing I’ve learnt in the last day or so is that hardly anyone reads instructions. As far as cold and flu meds are concerned, especially. Did you know that it’s hot, not boiling, water that is supposed to be poured on the Lemsip powder? “What do you mean?” they ask, looking perplexed. Hot, not boiling. “Really?” That’s what it says on the box. “Does it make a difference? It’s water. Out of a kettle.” Yes it is. “Who reads the instructions anyway?” Yeah, yeah, that’s what everyone says. (And the unspoken words are, “You’re a strange one for reading the Lemsip box!”)
… Still ill. And losing patience with it.
