How To Take A Pill

Apropos your neck (see yesterday’s blog):

You know how to take a pill, don’t you – no big deal: You place the pill on your tongue, take a gulp of water, throw your head back – and voilà! The huge fish oil capsule is stuck somewhere, neither up no down, and it hurts.

The mistake lies here: One doesn’t throw back one's head. One tucks the chin to the chest, and then swallows.

Because in that position you create a greater space in your throat for the pill to go down safely without being stuck. This is the trick: Chin-to-chest, then swallow.
