Resistant Dialogue

Street garden flowers, likely Allium sp.
Overheard at a '50s-style diner, in Big City, USA, between two waiters:

"I've been feeling really stuffy and sick lately"
"Well, you know what I do? I just get a Z-pak"
"Does it work?"
"Oh yeah. You only take 6 pills, and you feel great in a few days. Though, sometimes I end up taking two packs"

And that, dear readers, explains some of the nagging reasons we now have azithromycin-resistant bacteria.

To those in the U.S. - Happy Labor Day
To those in the rest of the world - Happy Monday*

*Inspired by a classic Chemjobber bit.
