On the Phone with Brussels Part 2

Me: OK, I leave on Saturday, do you need me to bring you anything?
Ana: Yeah. Buffering?
Me: What?
Ana: Bufferim?
Me: What? (almost said: can you spell that?)
Ana: Isn't that what you call it? Aspirin.
Me: BUFFERIN.
Ana: Yeah. For all the giant headaches we get at the office!

what a wonderful brand-name. I've never heard of that one before!

Kind of like people outside the USA call tylenol paracetamol.

Have a good trip to Brussels. No flight movie vote this time? :)

Paisley, I guess it's an American brand!

Amie, yes, paracetamol... I had to buy some in a pharmacy once and I didn't know it was Tylenol. I chose it for my headache (my general approach in a foreign pharmacy is just to tell the pharmacist "I have a headache" or whatever and let them suggest stuff) because I rememebered English girls take it from books like Bridget Jones.

And I will do a movie vote for the return trip. On the flights over, I only watch one movie & sleep the rest of the time, and there was one on the list I already knew I wanted to see!

WMK, I guess not at the pub!

Sarah, do you have heath care crudentials?! I would have replied "I am really good at putting on band-aids and dispensing children's tylenol."
