It is as light as during the prime hour of early daytime, the sky is an even blue. Every object is visible, edges sharp and surfaces speckless. Never have I experienced more unclarity.
The most confusing dilemma is the choice between a pair, when all options are apparent and their number equal. Whichever is picked is of no significance, the quandary is which would lead to a less foggy situation.
Antihistamine reality is presenting heavy translucency as transparency; seemingly fixed points crumbling into a handful of ungraspable dust.
Now, let me take a Claritin to make things unclearclear.
Antihistamines, the drugs combating the symptoms of allergies, promise the consumer a full sensation of clarity. The packaging is illustrated using a light blue colour, the image of a clear sky, open doors, idyllic landscapes and other metaphors of a carefree state of being. However, this is only a short-term escape from the everyday itches, congestions and inflammations; a coat of denial on a rapid reaction to a serious failure
