A Co-worker brought in some Robitussin cough syrup to help break up the congestion I have and help my cough. The minute I smelled it I instantly remembered having to take this stuff as a child and just how much I hated it. I had to psych myself up into taking it... why couldn’t I just be an adult and take the stupid medicine without making a big deal and making the funny faces both before and after. I mean I really felt like running into another room yelling “NOOOOOO! You can’t make me take this medicine. I don’t CARE if I get better!” Then throwing myself on the floor with my hands over my mouth.
I refrained from doing that (as I don’t know when they vacuumed last) and took the damn medicine. And just as I remembered, that stuff still tastes absolutely horrible. True, it works great….but you think they could make it taste better!
