It's only early December and already I've been beset by a couple colds. This cold is particularly nasty, complete with chills, body aches, coughing, sneezing, nausea, a low-grade fever and a sore throat. I'm toughing it out, though, and entertaining myself by looking at old medicine ads (like this Vicks one!) when I'm not knitting and watching Marilyn Monroe movies.

I especially love the recurring theme in the Pepto Bismol and milk of magnesia ads--got an interpersonal problem? It's your stomach. Honest. Stay healthy, my friends.
