I arrived to class the other morning and said to my friends, " You guys, have you ever taken alka-seltzer? It is like the biggest pill, and I am so bad at taking pills...it was awful."
I look up to find their eyes on me, brows quirked.
"You know you're supposed to put those in water...right?" One says.
I pause as that sinks in.
"WHAT?" I can feel the heat rising in my face.
Everyone is falling over laughing and I'm pounding the table, "Wait, will it still work?? I need this medicine, will it still work??"
And then, it occurs to me... I may not be as stupid as I feel.
I say, "You guys... no... it's the gel tablets. Not the regular ones! I'm not THAT stupid..."
Then of course we burst out laughing all over again...because the sad thing is, I could see myself doing that :)
