I have a cough. Not a bad one, but it irritates me ... no pun intended. So, after dinner with a friend, we went over to the store and purchased a generic cough syrup.

The instructions tell me that an adult and children over 12 should take two teaspoons every 4 hours. There is even a convenient little cup that comes with my bottle of cough syrup.

But ...

The little cup has lines for 2 tsp, 3 tsp, and 1 tablespoon. ?????????

I checked the directions again. The highest dosage listed for adults is "two teaspoons". So why are there lines to indicate MORE than the safest dosage????

In an era wherein more warnings and labels are available than at any other time in human history, all of which are in an effort to keep people from making mistakes with their medicines ... is the packaging so ... so ... wrong?

I can just see someone thinking, oh, my cough is so bad I need the stronger dosage, I'll choose the TABLESPOON line to fill my medicine cup. However, the instructions clearly read "two teaspoons".

I just don't get it, however, my cough is a bit better. And that was with the two tablespoons portion too.

Warm Fuzziness

Well y'all ... Lola's blog will be more upbeat this time.

I auditioned (yes, I sang!) for the show HONK! And I got cast! Yeah!!!!! More on this to come, I'm sure.

Also, I finished my second sweater. The first was an open front infant sweater, this one is a poofy, fuzzy pink pull-over. Check it out:

Later y'all,

Hi there, sorry for the last downer of a post. I'm doing better, although I'm still exhausted from all the extra work and stress.

Good friends and a wonderful family are a nice balm, however.
