it started out with the sniffles over a week ago, which escalated into a runny nose, the kind wherein your nose drips without any warning eww... then my throat and chest got all phlegmy ugh... now i'm coughing incessantly it's embarrassing in public places. i think the doggy's sick too because when i checked on him this morning, his nose was dripping (which he promptly licked eewww!!). i think nagka-hawaan kami!!
i'm terrible when it comes to any kind of medication, i never know what to take. even worse is that i don't take any vitamins! not even vitamin C!! and now that i'm sick, people have been telling me to bombard my immune system with vitamin C. well, it was perfect timing then that i received some sample bottles of smart C+, a new juice drink that's supposed to contain 500mg of vitamin C—that's over five times the recommended daily dose! the more, the better, right??
and it comes in three citrus flavors, all of them my favorites: lemon squeeze, orange crush, and pomelo grapefruit (the last one would taste even better with ice and a splash of vodka hehe ;-) health-conscious people will be glad to know that there are no preservatives, no artificial coloring, and no artificial sweetener. which, of course, means that it is not calorie-free, unfortunately. so for the past few days, i've been drinking this during lunch instead of my usual coke zero. hmmm this may just become a daily habit...
