Thank goodness I was sitting in the library yesterday so that I heard this:
There was a rather rude young man making an appointment (over the phone) with the student health center. He described his symptoms as "my throat. it hurts." He then must have gotten transferred to someone else because he repeated, "yeah, i need an appointment for my throat." After a brief pause he explained to the receptionist, "well, i've been drinking ice water to soothe it, but that didn't do anything."
Duh. What an idiot. And now everyone in Ellis Library knows you are an idiot too.
So for all of you that were looking for that cure-all for a sore throat, it's not ice water. Sorry.
