The title is hardly accurate but I’m too lazy to come up with a more apt one. My story:
Time was when mouthwash meant this:
Then other brands emerged.
So Listerine came up with new variants, among them this:
Last night, son came out of the bathroom his eyes looking flushed like he had just cried, and he was shaking his head. He said, “grabe.” I said, “Hay salamat” after he explained his look. He had used the Orange Listerine for the first time and said “ang tapang.”
SO why did I smile? Misery loves company. I have this propensity to try out new things and sometimes this has proved to be my undoing. As with Listerine orange. I gag each time I used it. I feel like throwing up until I manage a burp. I thought it was just I and my blocked sinuses or maybe a deviated septum. But with the same product evoking the same reaction from son? Now I know it’s not just I.
I’ll go back to Astring-osol – the normal or green one. I remember Listerine Green Tea also drew the same reaction for me at the start but eventually I could take it. Son liked Green Tea from the very beginning.
