1. The other day I read a post over at Jules' about stopping a cough.
2. She said that you put vicks vaporub on your feet and then put on socks.
3. I emailed her to find out if you slather the vicks all over your feet or if just put on the bottoms.
4. She told me that you just put it on the bottoms.
5. I filed that tidbit of information until last night.
6. Mr. was coughing and wheezing all over the place. (I couldn't take it!)
7. He said he was going up to put on his pajamas. I suggested the vicks since he was going up anyway.
8. He balked! He assured me that it "just wasn't going to work!", BUT he tried it.
9. He came down stinking of vicks...
10. I waited while he complained that this silliness was not going to work.
11. He did not cough. I grinned, but said nothing.
12. I waited while he did the dishes... (It seems vicks on your feet makes you feel better all over!) I finally had to giggle. He still wasn't coughing!!
13. He did NOT cough. He coughed exactly two times last night -- all night. He feels much better. So.. If you get a cough, slather vicks on the bottoms of your feet and put on some socks. It works! It really really works!! Thanks Jules!!
