zinc sucks

I'm taking all sorts of over the counter medicine to kick this cold/flu thing I've got going on. Tom bought these zinc tablets that dissolve on your tongue but taste like old pennies. After 2 seconds I spit it out. Tom hands me another one and I tell him that I'll just swallow it whole cuz I can't handle the taste. He says, "Just suck it, but don't swallow."

Hmm. Haven't heard that in a while.

While I'm upstairs sucking, he's downstairs watching the Bears game and every once in a while he lets out a Tourette's like yell of disgust and it makes me laugh so hard that I may or may not have peed my pants a little. No more liquids for me.

Please share the story about why you know what old pennies taste like. Are they worse than new pennies?
