This Stuff Never Works!

Poor little Doodlebug had a cold. He had a dry cough that just wouldn't quit. I took him upstairs to get him some cough syrup, hoping to quiet the cough a little bit. Immediately after swallowing the cough syrup, he coughed.

"This stuff never works!" he yelled.

I tried to explain that it takes a few minutes to get into his system and start working. He was having none of it!
He then spent the next 15 minutes lamenting the failures of modern medicine and complaining bitterly about the absolute uselessness of cough syrup. He complained until he finally forgot about it because his coughing had stopped.

I didn't even bother to point out to him that it had stopped.
