Tonight I saw a commercial for Bayer aspirin and realized how much things have changed.
This commercial shows an airplane passenger asking a flight attendant for something for his aching back. She returns with a package of Bayer aspirin. He is surprised and reminds her that he has pain and is not having a heart attack. He takes it anyway and at the end of the flight is surprised that it has worked.
Ever since I can remember, the only medication I've ever taken for pain, whether it is a headache, sore muscle or backache was my trusty Bayer aspirin. It's still the only pain pill I take. I've never taken any of the newer painkillers like Motrin, Aleve or even Anacin. Aspirin always did the trick.
I guess everything old is new again.
