I HATE, absolutely DETEST taking pills.
From the first time I remember popping a pill in my mouth
It has always been a huge problem
It hasn’t changed since
But as with most things around trying to feel better , it’s something you have to do
The other day I likened my job to taking a pill
“Close my eyes pop it in and hope I don’t have to taste it as it goes down my throat”
That’s literally how I carry out every task at work
And as is the case with taking a pill , most times I’m successful .
The drug gets in my belly without a trace in my mouth
Without accidentally hitting the roof of my mouth
Or touching the back of my throat
It just goes down with the liquid as intended
But there are those other times when I pop the pill in and the devil rears it ugly head
Causing the pill to either become too big to flow seamlessly down my throat. Causing the pill to linger on my tongue after the liquid is long gone leaving a repulsive sediment I can almost always never get out of my head
Or causing the pill to stray to the side, fall in between my teeth and in the midst of my confusion, I bite down – ohhh the horror!!!
That’s how it is with work
My lucky streak runs out for a bit and I get to experience how incredibly horribly tasting my job can actually be.
