How I loathe Proud Pill Poppers – people who make a big deal out of taking vitamins or prescription medication or even just plain aspirin, celebrating the procedure as a carefully orchestrated ritual. It's bad enough when they do it in their own homes, separating the various colored pills into little piles to be ingested in a specific sequence. Even worse are those who unload their arsenal in public, and make a big production out of their dedication to their health. What's next? Is some asshole going to insert a suppository at the table as she blithely chats with her friends?
