In The Wee Small Hours

119.  Desmotabs (0.2mg)

Here is an old joke from the Seventies (perhaps older) so hope no one is offended because to seems everybody these days under 30 is offended by everything that went on on the 70’s…
Little Johnny is in class and he asks the teacher if he can go as to the loo as he’s bursting.
Teacher to Little Johnny: Before you go recite the alphabet
Little Johnny: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O Q R S T U V W X Y Z
Teacher: Where’s your P?”
Little Johnny:  Half way down my leg Sir.”

Again, I hope you haven’t been offended because I heard this joke in the Seventies and Channel 4 might take offence because they hate the Seventies. This hypocritical broadcaster  who cranks out such innocent & unoffensive efforts like ‘The InBetweeners’, makes cheapo talking-head sensationalist shows telling us such.(Yawn)

But seriously, bladder issues aren’t to be scoffed at. I should know. A combination of me entering my autumn years, a rabid thirst for tea and Greater Manchester, Salford & Bury Councils utterly despicable lack of traffic management means my 10 mile commute takes well over an hour & a half now and my back teeth are floating by the time I get home. Desmotabs (0.2mg) basically helps you produce less wee.  Now for the science bit…
“Desmotabs contain the active ingredient desmopressin, which is a type of medicine called a vasopressin analogue.  It is similar to a hormone produced naturally by the body, called vasopressin or antidiuretic hormone. Antidiuretic hormone (ADH) is produced by the pituitary gland in the brain. It is involved in controlling the
natural balance of water levels in the body. It normally acts on receptors in the kidneys to prevent excessive amounts of water being filtered out of the blood and into the urine. This reduces the production of urine.

Essentially though the reason we are here is the mug.
Desmotabs 0.2mg

This lipped Newbury gives me the warm & fuzzies. (In a dry way) It gives a pretty awful complaint a wonderful child-like gloss. You just know you’ll be OK with a Desmotab or two in you, all snuggled up in bed all cosy and warm and dry. I’ve fallen for this mug like a blind roofer. Even if I never drink from it I could keep it in my car in case of emergencies on those l-o-n-g drives home from work. (Only kidding)
