I've had a little cough for a few days now, nothing big, just a little phlegm and a dry cough.
Well, today I was talking to my mom and she asked how my cough was and if I was gargling. I told her I use Listerine, and she says "Don't do that. Your dad used Listerine for years, and his teeth are all messed up. (note: My dad is almost 70) It had to be the Listerine that did it. You have to gargle with warm water, honey, lemon and salt."
I tried to make a little joke, "Well, he also drank water everyday. Maybe it was that?" She didn't get it, so I said "Nevermind." I didn't want to get a speech.
