Or when you—or your kids—come down with a cold, and you’re desperate for something that can fight congestion and help you sleep through the night. Suddenly, it becomes a godsend, and you wonder how you’ve gotten by for so long without it. What’s even less likely to cross your mind—again, until you really need to deal with it?
