Today, November 9, officially marks the day when I became the brand ambassador of Vicks with a fun media launch at Makati Shangri-la. Well, it was fun except that I was a bit distracted because my little boy Iñigo was home sick while I was at work. That's why I won't forget the exact day when our family became sick because it was the day of the Vicks launch!
First it was Iñigo who went down with a bad cold and fever (Oct 9), then Vito two days later (Oct 11), then Vince and me the week after (Oct 15). Then around Oct 23, our health improved a few days before we went to Hong Kong Disneyland! But as soon as we landed here in Manila (Oct 28), we got sick again! And now, we've been sick for 10 days! It's just a nasty cold, don't worry. We're not dying (nervous laughter) but this sure is a bummer.
Sigh! I'd do anything to get better! But a virus is a virus. There's nothing to do but let it run its agonizing course. But I did find this interesting:
On my last post about Vicks where I talked about taking care of our hubbies when they're sick (a.k.a. Manchild!), not a few readers shared with me that one of their foolproof ways of taking care of their sick hubbies is by massaging Vicks on the soles of their feet then slipping on socks. They said that the next day, their hubbies always feel better!
Who else does this??? How did you learn about this Vicks-on-feet method? Because if this works for a lot of you, I'm going to do it on all of us!
