    Now this is just silly. Rose is a grown woman for goodness’ sake – with a child of her own. Women DO grow up you know!

    Many of them do. Many don’t.

    Not sayin nuthin, nope not a word…
    There are no good ways to talk about issues of size with women
    Feign absent-mindedness and leave the area

    No, the people in this comic strip are too conservative to even consider that.

    True. Whoever came up with the idea that anything good for us needs to taste bad should have been severely beaten.

    If she was “really” sick, she wouldn’t feel up to getting under the bed. She’d also be willing to take anything if her cough was all that bad.

    This is just one of the main themes of this comic: reversion to childhood. It’s silly, but I find it appealing. Rose’s other alter ego is more fun, though.

    I heart Robitussin Honey Cough. Very effective and it tastes like honey

    Every one of us still has a little girl or little boy inside. Vide Eric Berne (and Freud – although his terms were different the structure was similar). That’s why the concept is funny – and also why, if it annoys, it annoys at such a deep level.

    @The Nihilist

    how about a paraphrase from ‘Jaws’ :
    We’re gonna need a bigger bed

    Ugh I can sympathize, I HATE the taste of cough syrup, but I do take it when I need to

    Our medical residents once did an oral antibiotic tasting so they’d know which ones would have compliance issues.

    Have you ever noticed that Rose only seems to revert to childlike behavior when her mother is in the picture though?
