Vitamin C Day

Struggling with a cold, Victor dosed himself up on orange juice. He poured some in every hole. Mouth, nose, ears, bum, everywhere. It didn’t help, at all actually, if anything it made him feel a lot worse. But it did give his mum something to write about him in the family’s Christmas newsletter, at last.
