My mother, back in the day, would have said that would dilute
the medicine. But I like the idea better than sugar. Just
stay away from cinnamon. I hear it's become the "high" of
choice for some kids.

EASILY - answer to the question "Can good men be fooled?" Example:

"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed." - Eisenhower

See? Eisenhower was a nice man but without guns to fight bad men we all would be unclothed and cold and hungry.

Now BranShea, be nice (maybe you are but I couldn't open your nice video) because I wern't being "weasily".

You see, BranShe, in these United States of Mississippi it is permissible to disagree with your betters even if your betters are by some strange quirk better than you.

Anu, as you saw, slipped in his Eisenhower quote and understandably only a weasily Mississippian complained. laugh

And yet Anu, for the most part, is a good man.

You missed a cute little video. (link is in good order) So as I see you favor guns to keep off the bad man ( whoever they are) and to bring to everyone the wonderful permission to disagree with their betters ( whoever they may be)

Then you wern't being weasly but understandably only a weasly Missisippian. I really tried to understand. I don't mind being the dummy here. smile
