Midweek and I'm living with a headache that started yesterday morning. To my dismay, I found that the new HST applies to ibuprofen as well. So, I said to the cashier, jokingly, "Now my headaches are taxed, too!"

The cashier, who seemed to think that ibuprofen was not a "necessary" item and so should be taxed, answered: "You don't need medicine for headaches."

Have you ever had a migraine, I asked.

I've had headaches, he answered.

Migraine? I asked again.

No, he answered.

Then let me tell you that nothing shifts a migraine or a persistent headache but medicine.

He looked a bit sheepish.
I put it down to youth: he has a lot to learn.

Ah, life on the red planet.....
