Vicks Does Not Make Store Brands

Yesterday I woke up with a twinge of a cold. I could feel it in my nose. Something was not right. I ignored it, or tried my best to, but I couldn't help but acknowledge that a cold was already camping out in my head. My throat felt a little funny and my body was just feeling rundown. Typical head cold.

I made it through the work day and even managed to go to class to make up one that I had missed. I didn't stay for the whole thing because I wanted to make sure I got a good, solid night of sleep, but it felt good to be there. I needed that. Especially the hello hug I got from B. B gives awesome hugs. Just sayin'. Anyway, it was nice to see some people I hadn't seen in a while and I also had a chance to briefly discuss my monologue with my acting coach, Christy. After talking to her for a couple of minutes I felt confident about my monologue choice, which is lucky for me because I don't have a backup! V also left me a birthday present in the closet there in class, so that really made my night.

V, D, and Me...Love this frame!
After getting back home, I promptly threw back a shot of NyQuil. I needed to sleep soundly and I didn't want to wake up in the middle of the night with a stuffy, runny nose. Thankfully it did the trick and I woke up feeling fine except for feeling a little groggy. Nothing a cup of joe won't cure! When I was unwrapping my NyQuil/DayQuil combo package, I saw on the label, "Vicks Does Not Make Store Brands." There are some things I will buy generic, but others I just won't budge on. NyQuil is one of them. If the store brand works for you, then good for you, but I won't be crossing over to the wannabe brand any time soon. I prefer the nighttime, sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, stuffy-head, fever, so you can rest medicine.

Nyquil at the end of the night. 

I will definitely be taking another nip of NyQuil tonight...hopefully I'll be feeling better tomorrow morning for my audition!
