Tips

  • Do not laugh when crying unless your hands are on your face and can laugh correctly. It will totally destroy the whole purpose of the mission (and this page, come to think of it). Also, like the boy who cried wolf, people won't believe you if you really DO cry.
  • With the vapor rub on have someone blow in your eyes then blink.
  • While doing this think of something sad to encourage the tears.
  • If you can't get the river flowing, leave the vapour rub on longer before removing.

Warnings

  • Vapor rub can sting your eyes, so be extra careful.
  • Make sure you put the vapor rub under the eyes, not in the eyes. If you do put it in, rinse well with warm water.
  • If ingested, follow instructions on vapor rub package.
