Bush's White House Tour

_A friend of mine just sent this to me and I found it really funny.
Enjoy!!!_

Before the inauguration, George W. was invited to a 'get acquainted' tour
of the White House.

After drinking several glasses of iced tea, he asked President Clinton if
he could use his personal bathroom. He was astonished to see that the
President had a solid gold urinal!

That afternoon, George W. told his wife, Laura, about the urinal. "Just
think," he said, "when I am President, I'll have my own personal gold
urinal!"

Later! , when Laura had lunch with Hillary at her tour of the White House,
she told Hillary how impressed George had been with his discovery of the
fact that, in the President's private bathroom, the President had a gold
urinal.

That evening, Bill and Hillary were getting ready for bed. Hillary turned
to Bill and said, "Well, I found out who peed in your saxophone.


Decongestants….to make you feel better or worse?

A couple of days ago I realised that I was going to get the flu…Aside from the fact that I was furious since I've been REALLY careful, I also realized that I had forgotten to bring with me the only medicine that makes me feel better when I have a blocked nose. It is called Dexa-Rhina Spray and apparently we only have it in Greece.
Anyway, after a long night when I hadn't been able to sleep AT ALL, I requested a very good friend of mine to go to the Pharmacy and bring me the strongest decongestant she could find. I asked her to talk to the Pharmacist and explain the situation. She did her best! I have no doubt about it! Half an hour later, she came back with a decongestant . I took one of them and it really made me feel better…About 4 hours later, before going to bed, I took another one in order to have a good night's sleep as the next day I had a really important class. Well, 4 of the longest hours of my life later, I realised that one of the side-effects of this medicine was insomnia! Not only wasn't I able to sleep at all (until 6am!) but my pulse was that fast that I felt like my heart would just jump out of my body and start dancing samba!

So, I wonder, what went wrong? Should I risk not sleeping by not taking any decongestant or should I risk not sleeping but actually taking a decongestant? Although I read the 'manual' before taking the medicine, I didn't think I would be one of the cases when the side-effects actually happen.

What I would like to make clear is that this is NO FAULT of my friend. I don't know whether it is really somebody's fault or it was a really unfortunate event. However, the result is the same. I missed my class the other day and I had to work twice as hard during the weekend to catch up.

So, my advise ? DON'T GET THE FLU! Take loads of vitamins and eat healthily, don't smoke (yes…I am a bad girl..I smoke)and don't trust decongestants!
