Adventures in drug store retail…on January 13, 2013 at 8:58 PM
So I had to hit my local apothecary for something with sinus-unblocking properties (yes, my white blood cells are apparently in need of martial arts training) and I saw two things that struck me and thought I’d share them because I can. It’s nearly Valentine’s Day, and I saw these on the racks:

More news as it happens.
