When nosebleeds became a problem and on weekends, without the pills,
when my head closed up tighter than a bank vault, I decided my system

fearing they might lead to "harder things" (dynamite?), I went cold

I feel so much better now that I've confessed my former addiction to the
group here. My name is Russ and I am a reformed sinus pill user.

Ross, what was that throat stuff you always kept on your desk in our
little office? Do I recall you had it in a spray bottle, an "atomizer?"
