So my grandma drinks magnesium chlorate on medical recommendation. It tastes like sh*t. Problem is, magnesium chlorate is, visibly, indistinguishable from water, and my grandma keeps bottles with both water and magnesium chlorate in her fridge – the former for guests to drink, and the latter for herself to drink.
Several weeks ago, i took a bottle out of the fridge, put the liquid on to a cup, and drank it. Turns out it had a revulsive taste, and i spat it out. My umcle walks in and says it’s grandma’s MC, so we make a deal to mark/write in the bottle with MC, writing “careful, magnesium chlorate” on it.
Now, today, i opened the fridge. I noticed the bottle with the magnesium chlorate markings on it and avoided it, in favour of one without markings. I put it on a cup and drank it, expecting it to be water. But nope, i feel the same revulsive taste and spit it out. Turns out grandma had ignored the rule of “put MC in the MC bottle” and out the chlorate in a bottle without markings.
I’m so fucking pissed right now.
