It’s official. I’m sick. For the past few days, I’ve tried to get by without taking much medication, but today it all went up in smoke. I had the honor of presenting as a panelist at the NYU Stern Open House for prospective students. I was on hand to share my experiences as a Stern student, along with my classmate Sandeep. With all of the talking required, I had to do something about my tragic coughing / man voice. Let me explain my systems… First of all, I sound like a man. Some of my roommates have called it my “sexy voice”, interestingly enough. My throat is scratchy, dry and evil, and I have wheezing coughs. Worst of all, the phlem family has invited itself over for the past week.
1.) They’re recognizable. Like many consumers out there, I went for the ones that I thought seemed most respectable.
2.) Ricola used the word “Natural”, and we all know that’s a buzz word that works on my demographic! Plus, they have the whole Swiss thing going for them.
3.) They’re both pink/red!
It’s good to know that I have my healthcare down to a meticulous and well-thought-out system, right?
Just two hours after taking some Vicks and two Ricolas later, I’m still not feeling any better. But I have hope!
