THINGS I WISH MY KIDS WOULD ASK ME

EDITOR'S NOTE: Barry Courter has a 23-year-old son who graduated from college last year and an 18-year-old daughter who is a freshman in college.

Q: Dad, I'm fighting cold No. 2 for this semester. What are the best meds?

A: College campuses, like day cares, are like giant Petri dishes. A lot of people don't know this, but you can go to a nearby pharmacist and describe your symptoms, and he or she will usually recommend something. This is true for ailments other than colds, too. They can't prescribe medicine, but they know which over-the-counter drugs work.
