Blogging is but the newest of my addictions…
Sure, we all have our own little addictions. To some, it’s the vices (sex, drugs, alcohol, etc.) which is bad. Some have good vices (oxymoronic?). To some, it’s gaming, chatting, friendster, surfing, etc.
But I have an addiction that I had since high school. Sniffing Vicks Vaporub.
I have a big jar near my bed for easy access. You can see easily it in the picture of my laptop posted in my friendster account. As a matter of fact, there is also a small vicks container there that I take everywhere I go. And I’m actually sniffing it while blogging right now…
In fact, I immediately buy one from anywhere if I forgot to bring it with me. My high school classmates know this so well that they looked for my Vicks during our 10th anniversary reunion in 1997… Clients are not offended. In fact, they borrow my Vicks whenever they see me using it.
Mind you, I know I’m not alone in this addiction. During our family reunion last Christmas, I went up to the mic and asked, “If you have a Vicks container, please raise it up.” Half the people there raised their Vicks. Genetic and/or hereditary… Some people even raised their “White Flowers.”
Now that’s really hardcore addiction!
