My eleven-year-old daughter has had a really nasty cold. Last night, I told her to rub a little Vicks VapoRub on her chest to help her breathe. She picked up the container and examined it.
"Mom, this expired in 2002. It's ten years old."
I took the container and looked at it. "No, it's not ten years old. It's eleven years old!"
"Mom, this thing is older than me!"
"Wrong, again girlfriend. You are six months older. I think you need to work on your math skills."
She looked at me funny. "And you need to work on your expiration date reading skills!"
LOL maybe it works better with age?ReplyDelete
I think so.Delete
Too funny! :)ReplyDelete
I mean, who really looks at expiration dates on Vicks jars?Delete
Oh my goodness how funny!ReplyDelete
Our kids sure know how to make anything interesting... and apparently teach us about expiration dates :D
*Loving the blog*
I really didn't know Vicks had an expiration date!Delete
They have an answer for everything today.ReplyDelete
Yes, they do! Just to keep us on our toes!Delete
LOL! Too funny. I think that I have a pot of Vicks VapoRub, that's about my age, so it's been around for about 16 years...ahem *coughs* :)ReplyDelete
Sixteen, hmmm? And you were how old when you had Spawn? ;)Delete
Ha!! I hate throwing anything away. Sounds like our house!! LolReplyDelete
Have a great day!!
Somebody told me they use Vicks to lubricate spokes on bike wheels. So go ahead, keep your old, expired Vicks jars!Delete
*LOL* Some things don't expire, not really. Well, maybe they become more powerful with age!ReplyDelete
I took a sniff to see if it smelled bad. And yes, it was pretty strong!Delete
LOL! I didn't know Vicks VapoRub even had an expiration date!ReplyDelete
Considering I am holding in my hand some school Tylenol that expired in 2008, and I'm still planning on taking it, I think I'm in good company.ReplyDelete
Hahaha! Now that's crazy. Even I wouldn't ingest Tylenol that's five years past the expiration date! If I don't hear from you ever again, I'll know what happened. ;)Delete
As I know Vicks would never expire! Haha!ReplyDelete
Vicks is immortal!Delete
LOL! Kids are so funny :-)ReplyDelete
Yes, they certainly are!Delete
*hee* Too funny! (Especially that "math skills" part!) I have a bad habit of letting things expire like that, too... *shifty eyes*ReplyDelete
I think I should go through my cupboards and see what else has expired!Delete
Hahaha. I so get this Sherry. It's a little too close to home. Hope the cold heals soon. God bless, Maria at Delight Directed LivingReplyDelete
I think all moms get this!Delete
Haha, This is so funny. :) I had no idea Vicks Vaporub has an expiration date.ReplyDelete
lol, good come back ;)ReplyDelete
My kids keep me on my toes!Delete
At least she notices the little thingsReplyDelete
A few months ago, she had mentioned they were learning about checking expiration dates. I think it was from her DARE class. She's been very vigilant about checking them ever since.Delete
I think she's very smart. Some people would try and eat it to see if it's really gone off. She didn't.ReplyDelete
Thank God for small miracles! Now if Schultz (our dog) had gotten a hold of it, there would've been big trouble!Delete
This is really hilarious! I enjoyed reading this very much.ReplyDelete
Glad you liked it!Delete
Haha...I feel like this girl of yours might have many more such comebacks in the years to come. ;) Love your kids and their characters! Looking forward to the stories to come!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing your thoughts on banana. RegardsReplyDelete
