Hey, I’m starting to think I may actually understand this homeopathy!
Don’t be ridiculous!
This is my greatest success story yet, Elaine. Wait till you hear it!
Ahem! I’ll just start. My daughter Sneezy’s allergy..
Whoa! Whoa! Wait a minute! Excuse me, I hate to interrupt, but, isn’t Sneezy one of the 7 dwarfs?
Is that a problem?
We don’t want our audience members to become disoriented.
Ooh! Homeopathy is impossible!
I told you!
By the way, how is your new foray into mentoring coming along?
Mentoring…? Oh yes, mentoring; well Kelly, the response has been amazing! Unbelievable. Absolutely unbelievable. Stunning. The emails…well, it’s just been, striking!
No one wrote did they.
Well, you know, Elaine, I think your advertising slogan may have scared people away.
What, you mean, “Be in the know, give Elaine your dough?”
Yes, that one.
You mean people don’t want to be “in the know”?
Could we just get back to picking a name for my daughter with the Sneezies!
How about “Sneezie”?
Aaaaaaah!!! Fine! As I was saying, my daughter, Sneezie, is allergic to something-in-the-basement! It started acting up again last night. She had a friend over and they were in the basement playing. I could hear her snuffling and making this weird clicking or clucking sound in her throat because of it itching.
Knowing that we’ve not had much success in coming up with a remedy for this in the past, Sneezie came upstairs begging for Benedryl!
Not being a fan of Benedryl, I replied, “Wait! Let me see if I can figure this out!” I said to myself, OK, Kelly, think: she has itching in the ears, her eyes are running and itchy, they’re red, lacrymation is bland, nose is running clear with a burning discharge and frequent sneezing. Her throat’s itching, and she’s got red blotches on her face especially under her nose.
I quickly gave her ____________. A half hour later, I caught up with her (no small feat!) and noticed immediately that she was symptom-free!! Usually this allergy progresses until she has to leave the basement and then is miserable for hours after. Not this time!! She and her friend spent the night in the basement without any discomfort at all! (or any sleep either for that matter!)
Late the next morning I heard her sneezing again followed by the weird throat-itching sound. I re-dosed with __________ and the symptoms went away and this time did not come back. This was the first time I was able to successfully treat one of her allergy episodes which have been tormenting her for years!!
