Ever Wonder Why

Why does Infant Tylenol have a cherry flavoring? What does a baby know about cherries?

As SwingDaddy points out, infant medication should be milk flavored.

P.S. I can't believe how many of you bothered to read yesterday's monster-length post. Thanks!

Also, does "P.S." make sense when blogging? It stands for postscript, thoughts that one wanted to add after the writing was finished. If I'm handwriting a letter, I can't go back an insert content in the middle, so I'd use a postscript. When blogging, however, I can just scroll up and type the additional thoughts, so I haven't really been indicating postscripts – instead, it's more of a non sequitur announcement. I'm going to try out a different abbreviation.

N.S. I think I'm rambling. Time to get some sleep.

I haven't wondered that before, but I sure will now!

Gah. It's all marketing.

hey, i SAY "p.s." in speech. talk about making no sense - a post-script in spoken language? kind of improbable, no? :-P

your husband is smart. i wish the damn stuff were flavoured with milk...or at least less sugar and dye and crap. i bought the dye-free but it still cultivates a taste for sugar. boo. hiss.

and ps...mmm...see that's a good question. i vote that type is script.

But it isn't necessarily a non-sequitur...it is an afterthought...especially useful to someone who read the post the first time...

Now I'm wondering the same thing. Your husband is one smart cookie. Milk flavor or simply sugar flavor would be enough, I'd think.

Yeah, that's a good point! That got to be the worse flavor. And I use P.S. too many times.
