aka The Frazzled Mom
I was cleaning up a big mess. The smell was bad, incredibly bad. I knew, from experience, that Vicks is one of the best ways to prevent hurling because of smells such as vomit and feces. I already had gloves on that were contaminated. I felt the heaving hit my stomach. Quick as I could, I called out to my husband for help. “Put Vicks in my nose!” I was in a hurry, I’ll just say that as my excuse for saying to put Vicks in my nose rather than under it.
What does he do? He scoops a big wad with his pinky finger and jams it up one nostril. Ack!
It stopped my heaving, but Vicks up the nose is NOT pleasant. In my husband’s defense, I did ask for it, literally. But come on! Who puts Vicks IN the nose?
