Health Advice ......

I love unsolicited advice. I was outside gathering seed from my zinnia, cosmos and marigolds to store until next spring. I saw them drive up and I went into the store. This couple stays here during the hunting season and are ....... odd? The man makes me a tad bit uncomfortable. He is not very nice to his wife when I have seen them interact. One time he got a cup of coffee for her, but when she tried to put cream and sugar in it he was impatient and told her to hurry up, then sat in the truck blowing his horn until she ran out the door. Really rude man.

Today he came in to pay for the evening and gestured to the ziploc bag in my hand. He asked what I was doing ..... I thought it was obvious, but replied that I was gathering seed. He looked at me like I was lying and asked to smell it. It was a gallon bag of cosmos seed. He looked a little disappointed when he took a whiff and commented that it looked like something I would be selling on the street.

I don't know if this was an opening for him to tell me that I needed to look into holistic medicines. He advised me to go to a particular website and order a wonder drug (?) that would change my life. He said that it had changed his life. He has more energy, has lost weight, and his sex life is great. I listened politely as he relayed all this to me and wished he would leave. His wife was waiting in the car and not blowing the horn impatiently. He was intent on spouting the sales propaganda about the product and telling me that the medical community did not want the public to know about this, since it would put them out of business and repeated the web address as he left.

Because I am the curious sort, I looked up his supplement. It consists of vitamin A, aloe vera and fiber. I wonder which ingredient gave him his surly attitude? He did not look all that fit to me with his pot belly and chronic cough. I won't be ordering this magic elixir.

fiber, eh? obviously it hasn't worked if he's still full of sh*T. LOL!

Like you said - they are "odd".

I had to laugh at Teresa's comment! Too funny!

lol Teresa's comment!!

My SIL is constantly telling me that she can cure all my ills, including type 1 diabetes, with this special tea that she brews. Who knew...all these years and I could have been cured. gah!

And here I thought he thought you had a bag of pot :o/
Guess you could have told him that and spouted it as YOUR wonder drug.
Teresa is right, the guy needs more fiber...

He's probably selling it. And what an idiot. Like you would be stupid enough to bring a baggie of illegal stuff with you to check someone in.

What font do the comments appear in? Have I asked you that before?

This fellow is goofy in way too many ways. I bet cosmos seeds smell kinda good and flowery. A waste of hs time.

I wonder if the Aloe sooths the ass after the fiber does its job? lol
