Accidental Overdose

04/19/2005

I went to the doctor today and learned that people with allergies and asthma are very prone to getting various kinds of skin rashes. Grrrrrreat. So, I was given a topical cream to put on should such flare-ups occur. (It has steroids…I wonder if that will help with my spiking ability…) I was reading the informational pamphlet that came with the cream, when I came across something quite interesting, “In case of overdose, call the US national poison hotline at 1-800-222-1222.”
HOW ON EARTH CAN YOU OVERDOSE ON A TOPICAL CREAM??? Like, you just take sixty bottles of the stuff and repeatedly rub layers and layers on your skin? Sit in a bathtub full of it?
Heh heh. For you visual types, this thought creates many interesting pictures. Hope you get a chuckle out of it like I did! I got two claps and a knee slap out of Josh with it! ;-)
