Bobby's comments on REZIL.....
As an old man going on 84, no one has yet offered me a “pity party” in recognition of a severe lower back pain many medical docs attribute to old age. The number of individuals suffering from this ailment are sufficiently high enough to conclude that many of them beset with the same curse would also welcome the mental contentment that sorrow, compassion, and commiseration can afford a victim. Pity may be a poor man’s pain killer and probably alleviates hurt, pain, and discomfort in some way. Can we talk a patient out of his affliction? It’s a nice thought. That so many of us suffer in the same way is everywhere to be seen in the town I live in, particularly in the waiting rooms of doctors’ offices. A multitude of us have become “hunchback” patients with telltale postures. I know. I find myself “hunchbacking” to appointments which has almost become an enforced hobby of mine these days. That is, until lately.
Common to the habits of hurting humans is the envious collection of painkillers in our shaving kits. A cafeteria selection, if you will, thanks to the published promises featured in magazine, newspaper, and TV ads. One pain relief that is a roll-on now has a reserved seat in my shaving kit goes by the name of REZIL and heads all the rest, because it neutralizes pain and is convenient to apply when arising in the morning. The REZIL roll-on rests on my bedside table, and I begin the day by raking it across my naked lower back a few times to prevent my playing the role of contortionist rolling out of bed with a hard felt disability typical of a crippled person—or a clown.
Lower back pain victims are plagued with what seems to be a painful entanglement of muscles, nerves, and bones, each vying for a dominant role in making getting out of bed a prime source of misery. My audiences of friend and kin have witnessed me twisting and shifting in hopes of getting out of the sack to make a soft landing. REZIL serves as an outstanding solution to those AM woes and, as he expression goes, “greases the skids” to introduce a welcome ease of movement. REZIL converts victims into beneficiaries by providing a borne-again relief and, with it, the respectability of uprightness awarded us by evolution. Moreover, it enables me to meet the day head-on. And, to paraphrase an heroic American astronaut, this is “a giant step for mankind!”
Lastly, one doesn’t have to go to the moon to know REZIL is available in a convenient pocket size and is in no way restricted to the relief of lower back pains.
