There’s shampoo in my cough syrup!

I have a bottle of off-the-shelf cough syrup, which is great for relieving coughs and sore throats. It’s also honey and lemon flavour, so it actually tastes nice too. Its active ingredient is glycerin.
Anyway, I was in the shower this afternoon (see below) and happened to notice that the shampoo I was using also contained glycerin. The concept of putting cough syrup on my hair amused me slightly, but the inverse – the concept of shampoo being in my cough syrup – was somewhat less than savoury.
The reason why I was showering so late is that I’ve been in bed most of the day with a very heavy hangover, which I put down to the availability of £1 pints in the union and me not eating enough for dinner last night. I’m somewhat better now but until about 4:30pm I was somewhat immobile. Thankfully, having a laptop means I can surf the interweb in bed.
