The Phrasing Is Worse Than The Cure

(I attempt to give my 14-year-old daughter some cough, cold, and flu medicine that is as thick as molasses, brown, and tastes horrible. It is a credit to her that she was able to keep down the amount she swallows. I say Dad must have bought it, because I would not buy something that looked that ghastly. Later on I tell my husband about it, and he teases her about not being able to drink it.)

Me: *handing him the bottle* “If you are so brave, you have some.”

(He opens the bottle and takes a swig. He keeps a straight face.)

Husband: “I have to go lick the a** of a skunk now to get the taste out of my mouth!”

Me: “Okay… good affirmation that it actually does taste bad, but did you have to phrase it that way?”
