Fisherman's Friend...


...are my friends too! They cut right through the crud in my throat like a hot knife through butta...

Though I'm a bit froggy, there is enough voice to speak & be heard. Woo hoo. Thanks for your prayers.

WARNING: Stop reading now if you're easily grossed out - you've been warned.

The coup d'grat was a Fisherman's Friend, followed by a cup of tea (Earl Grey, hot, just like Jean Luc!) & a cough that dislodged a piece of hardened flem about the size of a quarter. I'll leave any further descriptions to the imagination.

It's like coughing up a dirt clod, right?

laura said...

Jeni said...

Hmmm... And what exactly is a Fisherman's Friend? And where would one find it?

Dabey- yes. Dirt clod. Grimy & gooey dirt clod.
TPT - yes. Phlegmatic.
Erin - Mucinex, no. Crusty chex mix, yes.
Laura - big booger. yes.
Jeni- Fisherman's Friend is a curiously strong throat lozenge, menthol-y to the max. Burns through anything in the nasal passage/froat... Any chain store, super store, drug store should carry it.

And, they're international. One can purchase them in Europe as well.

I'll keep my eyes open for that one. I actually brought back throat stuff from the states at Christmas because the stuff I've found here is NOT helpful. Oh well...I'll look for Fishermans...
