*Starling standing at the pharmacy’s customer appreciation booth*
Angry manager: “YOU CAN HAVE ONE OF THOSE THINGS!” Walks away hurriedly.
Starling: Stops browsing the free health hand-out she was looking at. Only then realizes there is a counter of free stuff in front of her. She frowns at retreating no-fun-manager, and then turns to table, eyes lingering on the balloons that are not part of the giveaway, but the display.
Master Betty: Stares at pharmacy-retreating wife with armload of stuff topped off with a balloon. “A Frisbee, papers, suckers, hand outs…large squishy stress-squeeze shaped like…is this supposed to be a giant pill? Oh, I get it. Because it’s a pharmacy, and people take pills when they’re stressed, like heroine.”
Starling: “Heroine for stress??? That sounds like a bad idea!! Does heroine even come in pill form? How do people do heroine?”
Master Betty: “I don’t know. However this pill is taken, I guess, since it’s a stress heroine pill.”
Starling: “You don’t eat this pill. This…is… a…SUPPOSITORY!!! NOW COME HERE!!! I WILL SUPPOSIT YOU!!!” Jabs at his butt with squishy pill. “Supposit, supposit, SUPPOSITSUPPOSITSUPPOSIT!!!!”
Master Betty: “I don’t think people say ‘supposit’ while they….um…”
Master Betty: “Yeah. I mean, no. I don’t think there’s a widely accepted action term that people in normal society yell out while they take their medicine from that end.”
Starling: “I’m bringin’ it back.”
Master Betty: “No…it wasn’t ever a thing. You can’t bring it back.” Sighs and demands to leave as Starling eyes angry manager and begins to conclude that angry manager must be a stressed manager who may need some meds.
