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.

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.

Oh. So….kind of you.
Let me think about it, eh?
