excerpted from my Facebook status, because I'm too tired to write it out again...
this is embarrassing...
I've been feeling like I might be coming down
with a cold, so I dropped a fizzy Emergen-C tablet in my glass and went
about my business while it dissolved. I came back to drink it and
thought, "Hm, this doesn't taste very good." But I stoically chugged
the whole glass down. Immediately I begin to feel ill, my throat is
burning and I start foaming at the mouth. Someone had squirted a
sizable amount of Palmolive dish soap in my glass!!!! And I actually
drank the whole thing!! Poison Control assured me I won't die, and
through snickers asked me how old I am. What they should have asked is
my hair color...
perp confessed. He thought the fizz was an experiment his brother was
conducting and that adding soap would have a scientific benefit. When
nothing exploded he walked off and forgot about it. I'm feeling a lot
better now. Not something I'll soon forget.
I'm just glad it wasn't bleach or anything actually dangerous. And
since it was the "antibacterial" variety, maybe it will beat this cold.
