I happen to think Campari tastes better than most cough syrups (I know, what an endorsement). And it’s so pretty. I do make my drink selection on more attributes than simply "pretty." I like Campari’s bitter, layered taste, and the scent, but I also love that transparent, radiant scarlet.
Anyway, no Campari for me right now. I've been having cough syrup, but it’s the good stuff. Because I have diva lungs that demand attention (and in a huff about something, they managed to cook up a chest infection just in time for the end of the school year), the doctor is nice enough to write me a prescription for cough syrup with codeine, and codeine, as well as being a cough suppresant, is, as an opiate (opioid?), a great painkiller. So last night instead of hacking the night away, wishing my diva lungs would let me sleep, I knocked back a tot of that stuff and passed out. I may not be better this morning, but a decent night of sleep helps.*
*Mom, I’m fine. Really.
