No more tablets (for now)…

September 15, 2010

You will know, if you are a regular reader of our blog, that we have had some trouble with snotty noses and runny eyes. Last week we finished our third course of antibiotics and our hooparents got really good at giving us tablets (with all that experience they could hardly have gotten worse).

They had gotten so good that we needed to find new techniques to try to stop them from getting those tablets down our throats. These involved us having jelly legs so they couldn’t keep our heads up and sticking our tongues up in the air to make our throat hole as small as possible! Our best one was our super pill-popper plan…

The story starts with us having learnt to jump up onto the kitchen units. Our hooparents had five months of happiness at us not being confident enough to jump up onto the kitchen work surfaces, when Nevada realised he could easily jump up there, I quickly followed his example and we now get up on the surfaces whenever we want and especially when our hooparents don’t want! Once we had learnt this our hooparents had to move all our treats, medications etc into cupboards so we couldn’t get to them.

That first night, after hooma had moved the stuff, our hooparents got all the torture gear ready for us to receive our tablets… but hooma couldn’t find our pill-popper (apparently this device is essential in ensuring the tablets shoot to the back of our throats)… hoopa accused hooma of putting it away somewhere and forgetting where. They looked in all the cupboards and drawers but could not find it. Then hooma looked at us and said ‘have you hidden the pill-popper?’ Hoopa laughed, as if we could… they both laughed and continued looking. Finally, the only possible solution was that we had stolen it, so they started looking in our beds until hoopa shouted ‘You’ll never believe this, it’s pushed under and to the back of the fridge!’

So OK, we did take it from the side and yes, we did play with it… but do you really think that we could be cunning enough to hide it? … you decide!

    Mmmmmmmmmmmm, I think you two are clever enough to hide the pill-popper. It’s a kind of game. MOL

    TSB is much too clever to let us get away with passing off a pill. She has no problems pinning us and shoving pills down our throat. With me being special-needs, I get pilled plenty so I’ve just learned it’s easier to just let her give them to me. After all, she wouldn’t give them to me if they’re not going to make me feel better!
