Castor oil

09/30/2008 at 7:22 pm (people)

The other day an older lady came in the door while I was manning the front check out.

I heard her ask her companion if she would go and get her some castor oil.

And I thought, “Surely we don’t sell that!”

But sure enough, they came through my line she had a little bottle of castor oil.

She said that she was hoping for a bigger bottle, and I remarked that I was surprised we sold it at all.

“Most folks nowadays don’t go for these old time remedies,” I said.

She said she rubbed her joints with the oil, and claimed that it really helped her arthritis.

She said her doctor laughed at her when she told him about it, but became a convert after trying it himself.
