maybe it's the flu talking,
but i think pepto is beautiful.
i also enjoy the taste of pepto.
this is not the flu talking.
i had the unfortunate chance to experience
generic pepto a few weeks ago,
after my onion ring massacre,
and i did not enjoy that little shot of pink
as much as i should have.
yesterday, i licked the medicine cup clean.
cory witnessed the incident
and said he worried how much time
our future children would spend with me.
then he said i was weird for
i believe his exact words were,
" who wants to invent a pepto-nyquil combo shot?
what person enjoys those flavors enough
to combine them?"
i enjoy those flavors.
and candy-coated advil
and cough drops that taste like creme savers.
and no, i don't have a "problem"
but if i'm going to be sick,
i'm going to enjoy it,
