The other day I had the misfortune of jamming my nail into the back of a chair, causing the nail to bend back and rip from the bed in a very alarming, not to say painful manner.
I cried like a little girl. I admit it.
Once I took care of the bleeding and the whining, I went to look for a bandage to hold my nail down so that it wouldn’t rip any further.
Nothing in my medicine cabinet.
Nothing in the medicine basket in the kitchen.
Nothing in the first aid kit.
Finally I find a box of bandages buried under who knows how many empty bottles and leftover soaps and dried up nail polishes inside the kids’ bath cabinet. So, I am remedying that oversight today. And cleaning out the crap that has collected due to lazy kids.
Stuff One Should Never Be Without in a Medicine Cabinet
Be all and end all of pain relievers, acne sufferers, and let’s not forget those with heart issues.
#4– Isopropyl alcohol
I have to make that distinction. Otherwise, people would stock Everclear™.
Blood is sure pretty, unless it’s your own.
#2– Bismuth solution
For every abdomen ailment. And it’s pink! BONUS!!
#1– Topical antibiotic
I must have seventeen tubes of Neosporin™, Lanacane™, and Bacitracin™ all over the house. And I’m of the opinion it’s STILL not enough.
Anyway, I hope y’all have a wonderful Thursday and enjoy the day not needing any of these items. I’m off to clean out the massive collection of crap under the cabinet. Here’s hoping none of it is radioactive by now 🙂
