“You’re a Pill!” “He’s a pill!” “Don’t be such a pill!”
These were common phrases my grandparents aimed at us young 'uns, many ages ago.
Of course, I now realize that “pill” readily translates into “pain in the ass”, only in a more light-hearted way.
So, are you familiar with the phrase? What did it mean for you? Do you use it yourself?
I kinda miss the phrase. I used it on my kids only infrequently, and I doubt they even noticed as a result. If they give me grandkids, I’ll definitely use it on them!
