What I have discovered is that I have a new best friend forever. This is one of those friends I had neglected over the years for newer, shinier, frankly more stylish friends. I had though, wow, that friend is so ten years ago and I am far too amazing to hang out with that loser.
But I rediscovered said friend and realized I had it all completely wrong. This friend is the steadfast and true buddy. The one who will make you feel better in all the bad situations and will totally come running if you call after waking up in bed with a dead hooker (or sick husband).
So screw you acai berry flavored cough drops, and citrus flavored lozenges with the cool packaging. Sure, you may taste good and give me a few minutes pleasure. But that pleasure is quickly forgotten when you are gone and my cough and throat on fire return immediately.
For my dear, dear friend, my Fisherman's Friend- well, welcome back and I'm sorry I was such a cheating douchebag.
