magical syrup.

Dear Dr. S,

I typically don't like visiting doctors. But I like you.

Because after eating 47 cough drops in three days, after suffering from an unfortunate allergic reaction to DayQuil that left me itchy itchy all over, and after spending two nights in complete coughing misery, I walked into your office looking like death itself. Minus makeup, minus sleep, and in my comfiest pajamas. Coughing. Coughing. Coughing.

You listened to my poor lungs and you listened to my poor husband. And they both did a very good job of telling you how very sick and pathetic I was.

And then you gave me the most magical cough syrup.

I typically don't like medicine. (Especially medicine that pretends to taste like cherries.) But I am in love with my magical cough syrup.

Because my magical syrup made all coughing disappear. In fact, it made everything disappear. Last night I slept in a state of pure happy nothing-ness for nine beautiful hours.

And today, I feel better. Thank you very much.



  1. HAHAHAHAHAHA! This is a contender for "cutest Becki post ever!"
    This is so well written and so so so funny! Dr. S gets to keep his job!
    I like how you said some syrups pretend to taste like cherries because that is SO TRUE!
    My favorite part is when you refer to both Timmy and your lungs at the same time! heeheehee
    Thanks for making me smile my one and only Becki smile! xoxo
