Beaten by the cap

There are days when the thin illusion of being an independent, functioning, human being gets shattered by the smallest of things.

Today I’m brought to my knees by the child-proof cap on my cough syrup.

Look I’m ill, I’m weak from hacking my lungs up…normally I have no problems with these things…but…this one…this sodding cap…it’s not like the usual ones…it mocks me.

I am not defeated however. I do eventually triumph. I just maybe cry a little in the process.
