Maybe This Pill’s Not Quite Big League

She: “But I took the ibuprofen!”

He: “The question is, where did you take it?”

She: “Ew.”

He: “On second thought, don’t answer that. So the fever hasn’t gone down?”

She: “No.”

He: “No relief from the cramps?”

She: “No.”

He: “Did you at least take a nap?”

She: “I tried, but everything that isn’t too hot or too cold hurts. And when I did doze off, somebody kept waking me up. Which is weird, because I’ve been alone in the house all day.”

He: “Hon, you’re a great cook and all, but you really shouldn’t try to make s’nores in bed. Let me see that bottle, will you?”

She: “OK …”

He: “No wonder!

She: “What?”

He: “This is a cheap store brand. The ‘not-ready-for-prime-time’ stuff. The ibuamateurfen. We’ve gotta upgrade your pills to the first team …”

In case you haven’t already, go visit Quilly and wish her a speedy recovery.

  1. Wait, if she made s’mores in bed are you sure you want her to get well?

    • You ever tried to get marshmallow out of percale, Doug?

  2. Well what can you expect on Friday 13th? But I hope she’s better already, and that the Ibu-pros know their job!

    • Thanks, Susan. We hope so.

  3. Oh please! By all means — DO get her the game day pills! Practice is over!

    • So now it come out. Melli, Secret Agent for Big Pharma. 😛 In fact, of course, there’s no difference between the brand names and the generics except the advertising, or we’d have gotten the brand names in the first place.

  4. I am somewhat better. The fever is gone but the aches and pains remain.
