Word reaches me that Bisodol has been discontinued. For those with normal appetites and digestive tracts, I should point out that Bisodol is the brand name of an indigestion tablet, that comes in a tube of 20 – like a roll of pastilles, which fits handily into your pocket. I never leave home without them. And am not sure what to replace them with. A healthier diet maybe. To be honest I feel bereft.
I was at an Assessment Centre for a job once. As a warm-up exercise they asked us to take a possession we had on us, and use it to introduce ourselves. Bisodol was the only thing I had on me other than my keys and some cash – no handbag, no bling, no suitcase, no phone, nothing. So, Bisodol it was.
I said that I always noticed the small print which said “if symptoms persist see your doctor” but I never did because I never wanted to have the following conversation.
“How often do you have these symptoms?”
“And how long for?”
“Um, about 32 years…”
Still can’t believe I didn’t get the job…
