Yesterday, Brother James mentioned that his daughter Nicolette (who is a counselor at a summer camp in upstate New York) had a sore throat and that he had recommended . . . before he could finish his sentence, Marash Girl broke in, as she is sometimes wont to do, with her tried and true (and fun) cure for sore throats. Wanna hear what she recommended that ALWAYS works both for her AND her children?
Go to a good movie in a movie theatre (not on TV or on your computer -- don't worry about the entry fee -- you'd pay more than that to go to see your doctor), order the largest possible popcorn with butter and salt (extra large refillable size) and a Coke (extra large refillable size with plenty of ice, NOT diet, no substitutes), grab plenty of napkins -- (DO NOT sneak in your own bottle of Coke or your own bag of popcorn to save a dollar or two because if you do, this cure will not work). Now settle down in your favorite section of the theatre, preferably with no one on either side of you, and steep yourself in the world of the movie. If you have finished the Coke and the popcorn by the end of the film, you may have an engorged tummy, but your sore throat will be gone!
