"a pep talk in every drop" sounds like a cheerful idea at the outset, but it is perhaps the nature of their work - catering to the phlegmy, muzzy-headed ill - that brings out the vindictive, aggressive side of these drop-mongers. what are meant to be encouraging words come off like the assaulting catch phrases a-type sports fathers scream at their children from the sidelines at practice.
competitive sports never were my metier, and now is really not the time to be fending off soccer dads. i wish you'd leave well enough alone, halls; just print out a picture of a rabbit or something inoffensive that a congested head can process, hmm? you don't see the tissues offering judgment.
