When I asked where she got it from, she told me it is an ancient remedy. Now, I don’t know if this is where my mom picked the trick from, or whether she made it all up or not. What I know is that it is tasteless at first, but then it gets worse, unbearable nauseatingly worse. But a good remedy, or so she says.

It is good for you. It is good for the cough. You will be able to sleep well at night. But i don’t want to sleep with That taste in my mouth. It is a mixture of sweet fruit gone bad and something not quite sure of itself. In other words, it is undrinkable. It is odorless, unless you stick your nose too close to the liquid. It is yellow, all the more reason not to drink it. Does it work? Well so far it has, but i can’t tell whether it is because of this secret remedy or the vodka-like cough syrup i just had to swallow.

Either cases, I admit I am high on something at this moment. But it doesn’t really matter because I am making a point here people.
