Gummy bears have failed me

I had tonsillitis a lot when I was a little kid.

A lot.

When I'd stay home from nursery school, they'd send a "Get Well" package that included a plastic cup with gummy bears inside.

I'd eat the gummy bears, and my sore throat would go away.

The magic of gummy bears!

So, I have a monster sore throat right now, and a huge shin-dig coming up this weekend. I cannot, will not be sick.

I bought gummy bears yesterday - they even have added Vitamin C! I downed 4 servings to ensure that my throat would get better.

I woke up this morning...

And my throat still hurts.

I was told at the dentist's office yesterday (by the hygenist, not the dentist) that alcohol is good for a sore throat. Alcohol kills germs. Right? The hygenist suggested vodka and I asked about rum which she said should work it's alcohol. How about gummy bears with a chaser of your favorite alcoholic drink. It just might work?!?
