Costco-sized pain

It has taken our family twenty-three months to go through this bottle of Ibuprofen (generic name for Advil or Motrin) which contained 500 pills, purchased at American warehouse membership store Costco. 

I just opened the second and final bottle in my stash of over-the-counter medicines from America. 

So what I'm saying here is we really need someone from America who has a Costco membership to come visit us in the next twenty-three months, bringing a replacement, so we don't run out when the summer of 2015 arrives. Okay? Okay. 

Reminder: we do have a spare bedroom with its own private bathroom and a view of the Huangpu River and the Bund. And we are excellent hosts so you won't actually need any ibuprofen yourself. Which is good, because when one has only 500 pills, one may find it hard to share. Don't want to run out unexpectedly, you know?
