As I mentioned earlier in the week, I have a cold. I am personally offended.
Cough syrup sucks. It really, really sucks.
You can't take cough syrup without gagging and having your head swivel around 360 degrees. It's that bad.
I mean, I understand the whole "make it taste bad because it's medicine" idea. Assuming that IS the idea behind the reason it tastes so bad.
But does it really have to taste that bad?
Couldn't it taste like vegetables instead? That wouldn't be so bad. It's not like I'm asking to have it taste like ice cream. Or chocolate.
Maybe I'm just taking the wrong kind of cough syrup. Somebody told me that you can get cough syrup in a capsule form. Hmmm, who knew? (Well, she did.)
Still, I'd rather gag down some cough syrup than hack up a lung. Wouldn't you?
Have you noticed how a well-placed comma and a single letter change can make a difference? Read it again:
Still, I'd rather gag down some cough syrup, then hack up a lung.
If you don't get this please look up the difference between "than" and "then," sooner rather than then. (Sorry, couldn't resist)
