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."

Super glue will do the same thing as Membrana.
