I was surprised and slightly taken aback tonight when mom started pushing chicken soup at me long-distance as the cure to all my ills. I don't remember there being an abundance of chicken soup when I was sick as a child; split pea, yes, but not chicken. And then dad got in his plug for chicken soup at the end of the call. Sheesh - is there some new major medical study that I've missed? Do I actually sound like I'm at death's door and the magic of chicken soup is all that will heal me?
