Need to Take a Pill, with Coffee?

I had to take two pills and all I had was hot coffee. It was too hot to drink with pills balanced on my tongue but, I took a deep sip and let the coffee rest in my mouth a second. I then carefully lowered my jaw without spilling any coffee and placed the pills […]
