i'll take a swig-a-that.

maybe it's the flu talking,
but i think pepto is beautiful.
just 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,
and i did not enjoy that little shot of pink
as much as i should have.
not.at.all.

confession.
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
liking nyquil.
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 do.
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,
dammit!

You are a hoot. I used to like the flavor of Advil and when I was little, I would eat those Vitamin C tablets like they were candy. Hope you two get feeling better soon!

On a random note, I found this the other day and thought, "Brissa must see this." You may or may not have already seen it, but just go ahead and swoon: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfsZHJEkilQ

You crack me up!
When I was younger I got the worst ear infection and mom gave me this pink goodnes and for the longest time I thought it was pepto. Because it too is pink. SO i would fake being sick so that she would give me the pink goodness again. Well it turneed out that it wasn't pepto at ALL. I really was craving Moxicilan. haha... it seriously tastes like bubble gum! YUM! Sometimes I still crave it. Something that good shouldn't be called medicine haha.. :)

when I was a kid I use to beg for grape flavored cough medicine for dessert. I grew out of that, though. I'm glad you have not. Feel better, champ.
