Prescription Medication

I'll bet you thought I was going to talk about the high cost of meds these days. Nope, that's for another time.
Do you see that little brown tab I'm pointing to on the prescription bottle?  That tab was nearly the death of me.  No one told me that the prescription bottle tops were going to be changed to some new fangled thingy. I was just getting use to the push down hard while turning the bottle top method. Now this!!!!! 
I tried the old way.
I tried pulling.
I tried chewing the darn thing off.
Mr. Cowboy came in from the hay fields during the chewing part and asked what I was doing. When I showed him, he had the nerve to smile, pull the tap downward and open the bottle. I was very annoyed with him and asked how he figured out how to open the bottle. He said that one of the grandkids had showed him..............well good grief.....why didn't I think of that. Give it to a kid and it would have been opened in seconds.............SIGH

On a brighter note. A couple of months ago, I taught a class to a guild on minis using Texas and an eagle as the theme.  I recently visited them and one lady showed off her finished quilt. Of course the photo doesn't do it justice.  She was very proud of her flying geese around the center block and so was I. Great job!!!!

My pharmacy changed to those lids/bottles a few years ago. If you don't need it to be childproof (such a joke anyway) you can turn the lid upside down and it works great. No need to push down on the tab if you do it that way. I open mine and flip the lids every time.
I also hack the other kind so they just screw off. Children can open them but older adults have a problem getting to the medicine they need.

You clearly taught that class well. Kudos to you.

My pharmacy changed to that bottle last month too. It took me awhile to figure it out too.

Terry takes 7 meds a day. I can tell you that those are my favorite med bottles. I keep on in my purse to hold coins. So Easy (sorry) to open. And remember, they think they are CHILD PROOF..that's how your grand knew how to open it, lol.

Everything is so had to open these days. I can't count how many injuries I have received from the task. Glad the children can open those meds - that's just what they meant to do!!!

Childproof? So how come kids can figure it out in a matter of seconds and we can't. They need to label them 'adult' proof!!!


Don't count the days, make the days count!
