A friend of mine recommended a product called Membrana for my toe. It is supposed to create a water-proof protective layer for open wounds. Today I visited a pharmacy to see if they had any. I wrote it down for the Pharmacy worker, and as she was looking for it, a rude, old, overweight, loud American man marched right up to the counter and interrupted her.
He cupped his hands over his mouth, as if to create a megaphone. Then he literally screamed, loudly and slowly: "DO YOU HAVE MIRALAX?!?" This made me take notice of him. Hands still cupped, AGAIN he screamed, "IT'S A LAXATIVE!!!!"
The poor Pharmacy worker couldn't understand him, but he gave up quickly and walked out.
After he left, I said to Nicole, "I think that's something you really should whisper."
