Green Goo - My addiction

Ode to me and my Mom - Mentholatum was the greengoo magic ever since I can remember. Mom used it on sore noses, dry skin, cracked lips for colds, flu - and the mere smell of the menthol makes me feel better fast. Never Vicks, NEVER. Mentholatum is hard to find now so I stock up - Lately everyone has had a cold or flu or stomach bug but Not ME!!! Maybe this stuff is a magic force field after all? Thanks Mom.

I agree that this stuff is magic. It's what works best for my seasonal stuffiness. Cute drawing, I really like the color you used for the container.

Wonderful Greengoo! I only know Vicks, which worked great as well, but could burn the living daylights out of an already red, sore nose and cracked lips...I suppose the same with Greengoo! Oh, to be a kid again in my mom's house...

Your drawing of green goo brings back memories of my childhood. We used the stuff on our chests and then had a steamer or humidifier going as well. Thanks for a nice memory! It's a very good drawing too!

So funny Sandy! I remember Vicks Vaporub being in my Mother's category. So well done.

I remeber that stuff! My mom used it, too. I didn't know they still made it. Great sketch!

Wonderful drawing! I'll have to look for that stuff, I suffer from constant cracked lips.

Oh, I can smell it and I can breath again! It reminds me of my grandma whom I still miss very much. She would have been proud of my creativity. Great sketch!
