Subject: QOTD for Tuesday, February 14, 2017 (Happy Valentine's Day!)

Today's quote is from "A Collector's Edition - Selected Excerpts from An Echo In The Bone" by Diana Gabaldon. Copyright 2009

"William just about made it to the rail in time. There was a certain amount of jocularity going on behind him, regarding Clarewell's pickle, who might suck it, and how much its owner would be obliged to pay for said service. This, interspersed with Clarewell's protestations that his aged grandmother swore by a sour pickle for the prevention of seasickness, and plainly it worked, for look at him, solid as a rock..."

[> [> [> As someone who can get motion sickness on anything that moves, I don't think it would. I tried those wrist bands, ginger, sitting in the front, etc. The only thing that works for me is Dramamine or Bonine, and I have to do the actual driving. Motion sickness is an awful feeling. -- TheresaB., Wed, February 15 2017, 3:23:12

[> I can get a bit of motion sickness on a boat or plane if it's very rough, but the wrist bands usually help. Maybe I'll have to pack a pickle for my next boating excursion! ;) -- DianaH, Wed, February 15 2017, 6:56:41

[> My younger son got motion sickness in the car for a few years. He didn't have it when he was real little... maybe started when he was around 7 or so and lasted a few years. -- Piper-Mom, Wed, February 15 2017, 7:00:44
