C for Calcium

Ok, it's official. We're goners! I thought I was the only one, but the husband is too! What happened was quite comical actually. I needed to stock up on some vitamins so went to the pharmacy and bought a few bottles of the usual stuff, Calcium, Iron etc. After having the "calcium" for a day, I realized something was different. The pill was smaller than the 500 mg pill of calcium and it tasted sourish. I looked at the bottle, and uffff, it wasn't calcium that I had bought, it was Vitamin C! C for Calcium, C for Vitamin C is what my mind thought apparently. So, anyways, I asked the husband to buy me a bottle of Calcium, he said no probs, and the next day, got a bottle for me. I know so sweet of him na! The only hitch was that he ended up buying the exact same bottle of Vitamin C too! Same brand, same size. I couldn't believe it. and then I couldn't stop laughing at it! Third time around, we went together to the pharmacy, asked someone to guide us to the C-A-L-C-I-U-M, picked up a bottle and kept repeating, Calcium right, this is Calcium right? Yes, we're both goners.

Next time try a multi mineral complex. A bit harder to mistake them for something else:))
