The Medical Value of a Pack of Frozen Peas

So, I'm sitting in Doc Renee's office Tuesday and she's finishing off the exam and giving me my walking orders: "You'll need to put hot and cold compresses on your back for a while. You can use frozen peas."

I straighten up. "Frozen peas? For what?"

"As the cold compress."

And I'm thinking, "How do I pour them on?"

She sees that I'm thinking. "Don't open the peas. Just use the bag."


And it works. These frozen peas people should advertise as a great medical breakthrough. Maybe they should include instructions, too.
