Pill-Popping Out Punchlines

, , , , | Related | October 2, 2018

(My sister has come to stay with me for the weekend and we are in the kitchen making breakfast. Due to health issues, I take multiple medications every day and have done for several years. I start counting out my many pills on the counter when my sister looks over.)

Sister: *pointing to one* “Is that a new tablet? Wow, its big.”

Me: “Eh, it’s not that big, but it is dissolvable and even raspberry flavored.”

Sister: “Still, do you cut it in half? It must be hard to swallow.”

(Looking up at her, I sweep the pills into my palm then swallow them all at once with practiced ease, all without breaking eye contact.)

Sister: “…”

Me: “Yeah, I could probably swallow a golf ball by now.”
