Only in Corydon

Cold got you down? GIVE IT HELL!

So there’s this drug store here, Butt Drugs — yes, the one in the commercial — and one of their features is all these old remedies nobody else carries around here, like headache powders (which my late mother-in-law used to flush her stoma), henna rinse, oil of cloves, and this cold preparation.

You never know what’s going to turn up around here. Sometimes I just stand on the sidewalk and go, “Huh.”

I’ve shared the commercial before, but I can’t resist sharing it again.

I love this town.

I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies on the subject of veggie seeds.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    That is indeed a hell of a cold remedy.

    I used to go to a huge corner-lot drugstore up in Hurstbourne that was labeled, in giant letters across its top: DRUG WORLD. Alas, I never got a photo.

      If you like, I can bring you a bumper sticker that says I heart Butt Drugs, if that’s any consolation.
