Rx: Minute Maid

I spent the last few days of 2009 and greeted 2010 with colds. It was accompanied by a terrible headache that left me bedridden the first few days of being sick. My sister, MG, bought a bottle of Minute Maid for me when she passed by the grocery store near our house.



My sister knows that I am not a big fan of water. And because I have colds, I need lots of fluid intake. Mineral, distilled or tap water, I'm sorry I just don't like the taste. Don't tell my son though, I require him to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. My sister left the Minute Maid on the table when she arrived home.



The next thing that happened...



...they didn't stop until they finished every single drop of my Minute Maid. I am glad that they enjoyed drinking Minute Maid together.



Good thing my sister, MA, needs to go to the grocery store to do the weekly grocery shopping. I gave her a list of things we need in the house.



The first thing she did, after getting a shopping cart was go to the Minute Maid shelf.



I guess she went Minute Maid panic buying that day.



She even grabbed one from the freezer to drink on the way home.



Finally, I can now drink Minute Maid. With a bowl (big bowl, yikes!) of hot macaroni soup. Even when I am sick, I can still enjoy drinking Minute Maid.





After being sick for a few days...



...I am cold-and-headache-free. But that didn't stop me from drinking Minute Maid. Prevention is still better than cure. I enjoy drinking Minute Maid more when I am not sick.


What about you? Have you tasted Minute Maid already? If not, you are missing half of your life. Go and grab one now in a store near you.

It's the season to be sick, not that we have to celebrate that. I also drank Minute Maid when I was sick a few weeks back. I'm not really sure if it helps because I drank it cold, I am not really into drinking lukewarm drinks. It's either hot or cold.
