Friday Ravetimes

I went to the doctors about the cough. I have some form of mild chest infection and need to take strange Beaumont-coloured antibiotics; literally half maroon and half yellow. Unfortunately I am not great at swallowing pills, and ended up spending about ten minutes over the sink pouring copious glasses of water down my front while my Dad laughed at me.
He then was like: "Look, it's easy," and got a bit of chocolate chip biscuit and swallowed it. Then he demonstrated again, until he accidentally chose a really big bit of biscuit and started choking. It was, I have to say, not greatly reassuring. I eventually, covered in water and surrounded by bits of 'practice biscuit' managed to swallow the darn pill.
More cheerfully, Company of Teens started yesterday with a whole lot of new people including someone called Dave from Trestle. The new people seem nice, although we are currently having some issues with an unfriendly girl from last term, but she's a definite minority.
Also, for the record, and I don't know if she reads this: Jessie is not bad, if you like that sort of thing. Which I do.

Surely biscuits are harder to swallow than pills?
They crumble.
Practice with something sensible, Haribo or... TICTACS!

That would have made sense, but biscuits were the closest thing to hand.
My Mum heard my Dad yelling "Just swallow the biscuit!" and she got really angry and said it was a stupid thing to do.
