Manchild mystery has been revealed. The answer to the question on which is the tougher sex becomes obvious time and again when the common cold hits the household. While women just blow their noses into their tissues, they manage to make breakfast, herd the kids off to school, get dressed, and go to work. Men, on the other hand, stay in bed all day and moan about their terrible illness.
Among his medication is the love that he receives from his wife Vanessa.
“She’s very motherly in showing me her love,” RJ admits.
Frances agrees that the motherly instinct generally kicks in when wives deal with their husbands’ cold symptoms.
Men may be tough on the outside but their inner Manchild reveals how much they still need to be babied just like their children with tender loving care when they get sick. Irritated by constant coughing and overcome with throbbing headaches, the Manchild needs immediate relief and all the support he needs to get back on his feet fast.
Towards this end, RJ and Frances reveal several helpful tips, such as giving him warm, comforting soupy dishes like arroz caldo, which, with its garlic and ginger ingredients, helps relieve nasal congestion. Mixing calamansi juice with honey also helps ease sore throat and supply him with lots of Vitamin C to fight cold. Constant sneezing and rubbing can dry and redden the nose, so having a bottle of moisturizer can help lessen his irritation.
“I really enjoy the moment my wife gently massages Vicks VapoRub on my head and I start feeling the relief in just a few minutes,” RJ says. Vicks VapoRub is as effective on RJ’s kids as on his own inner manchild.
Frances is also confident that just as Vicks works great on their kids, it is also effective on her big kid of a husband. “I use Vicks VapoRub when he is feeling heavily congested. I massage it onto his back. I also put a dollop in a basin of hot water,” she says proudly. “This makes a wonderful decongestant and humidifier at the same time.”
