I'd like to send a shout-out to...

The makers of this little box of Heaven:
I like to think I have a super-human immune system that is able to stave off most of the germy-germs that inhabit our planet. I don't get sick often, especially for working in a place crawling with kids who are crawling with said germy-germs.

That being said, my immune system has recently been the target of whatever it is that causes one's throat to become a little itchy one night, a little sore by the next morning, and then on fire and practically closed by the next night. Voice gone, sleep gone, all I want is a fire extinguisher to put out the flames. I may sound dramatic but you know you've been there.

Lucky for me my lovely husband made a special trip to the store in order to find whatever he could to ease my suffering and pathetic disposition. I admit freely that when I am under the weather, I become a sad lump of robe-clad, tea drinking woman. The kid returned with an arsenal of supplies - everything from honey (bless him) to the above pictured 'box of Heaven'. Seriously folks, even if you're as healthy as a horse, the sun is shining and you're running a marathon as I type, take those running shoes to the nearest drug store and STOCK UP! Speaking of stock, I might buy some in this product. For reelz, note to self.

Upon popping one of the honey coated disks into my mouth, I experienced instant relief. The back of my mouth and throat were suddenly coated in some honey lemon goodness that lingered, and within seconds, the numbing kicked in. Yes, the numbing. And then... nothing. I. felt. nothing. But in a good way. The fires we extinguished ya'll! For about 30 minutes, but it was a great 30 minutes. I think had I not returned to my Moroccan Mint tea the relief would have lingered. So I'm trying it again, sans tea. 24 minutes and counting...

PS - This is not a paid advertisement.

I hate that stuff. And didn't think it worked very well at all. Goes to show ya, different strokes for different folks.

too bad for you. This stuff gets 80 thumbs up in my book except...
**** UPDATE***********
This stuff is so not cool if you accidentally swallow one those little suckers whole. OMG you can feel the numbing going all the way down causing one to become quite nauseated. Ew.
