Benadryl is for Wimps
|Benadryl Is For Wimps|
To say that this stuff has a kick to it is, without a doubt, a horrible understatement. I generally prefer spicy food, but this stuff kicked my butt.
At first, I couldn't even handle swallowing it. I involuntarily spit it back out. However, and this is the important part, I could feel a difference in my congestion just from the instant that it was in my mouth so I tried it again with a series of smaller doses.
I eventually had one teaspoon of it on some pierogies. Once I was done coughing and sneezing and my eyes stopped watering, I soon felt almost completely better. My congestion is 90%, which is better than any of the over the counter stuff did for me. I'll probably try one more do to knock what's left of this congestion.
Anyway, because I was feeling better, I was also able to go to the canoe race that the Polish Yacht Club had down Jos. Campau, which is the main street in Hamtramck. (Yes, the canoe race was held on dry land. Yes, the Polish Yacht Club is nowhere near water. It's all a play on the "dumb Pollack" shtick that done by a group of fun-loving Polish Americans with a kick ass sense of humor.)
The race started about a minute before I got there. Regardless, you can see a short video clip of it below.
Bottom line: Benadryl really is for wimps and the yacht race is awesome.
