Alcohol, it’s great in Cherries Jubilee! It belongs in your favorite adult beverage, without a doubt! But there are some places, it really make no sense.
Nyquil for one. Sure, it’s “The nighttime, sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, best-sleep-you-ever-got-with-a-cold medicine”…but does it have to be 40 proof? Maybe that’s what makes it so easy to fall asleep! And fans of the TV show “The Simpsons” will remember it’s also the secret ingredient in the pop adult drink sensation “The Flaming Moe”.
Now gentle reader, you know that I have had a recent run of bad luck with sharp things. With the most recent injury a slice across the palm of my right hand. The palm of your hand is a tough place to have a cut of any sort. It’s always bending and flexing and changing shape. No way a bandage will hold there right? Yesterday before I started Swap Shop I decided to try some Liquid Bandage. (I dare you to take an open wound into the studio and not cringe from the thought of touching things) Liquid Bandage is a great idea. It covers the wound, keeping the crud out and allowing a safe healing environment. It flexes and bends and doesn’t peel off..it’s the best thing for a palm wound right?
I though so too! Until the applicator touched my palm and the raw, open wound. To quote the Pointer Sisters – FIRE! It seems Liquid Bandage is made with…..you got it….Alcohol!
What sadist decided that putting alcohol on an open wound is a good thing…………..
