Our house must be a very dangerous place to live in, judging by all the medication scattered all around the house. It’s sort of scattered clutter. You can find it In bathroom cabinets when you want cracked skin cream after a shave or a shower; in bedrooms there are pills for headaches after reading at bed time, in the lounge there are pills for more headaches watching the TV ; in the kitchen drawer there are plasters and ointments to patch me up for when I cut myself in the garden. Then we have a main store of drugs in one of the kitchen cupboards for every possible accident or incident —- from sun burn to frostbite, from bee stings to backache —- you name it we have probably ot it. We could open a branch of Boots the Chemist or maybe set up an A & E department in Kilsby.
Many of these medications are old and probably ineffective by now. They were bought or prescribed for a one off illness years ago, but we keep them “just in case” of a recurring epidemic. We also have lots of duplicated pills, plasters and potions because ” you never know when you might need one when all the shops are closed”.
There is only one problem with this medical cornucopia, that is finding the right pill or potion when you want it 😡
Has anybody got any good ideas ???
