    When your kid goes away on an international class trip to a developing country and you send them with the following: Tylenol, Advil, Benadryl, thermometer, pulse ox monitor, hydrocortisone, some old Zofran from the house, alcohol preps, loads of hand sanitizer, Dramamine, hemorrhoid cream (who knows just in case,right?), Pepto Bismol, ipecac syrup, tweezers, swabs, nail clippers, band aids, gauze, tape, Neosporin with pain relief, latex gloves, anti fungal cream, eye drops, rubber bands, Grandpa's albuterol inhaler, box of prunes, Cipro you were prescribed but for some reason never took, needless syringes and medicine cups from work, and small tubes of saline water from work too.
