Back in the early 1960s, my Dad's mother had to depend on others, to go places. Grandma was a widow who lived alone in the country. Plus, she had never learned to drive a car. So when Grandpa died, a friend in the community would pick her up on Saturday to go to town for groceries. On Sunday and Wednesday evening, another lady would pick her up, to go to church services. One evening while waiting to attend a weekly prayer meeting, Grandma's stomach was bothering her. The only remedy she knew of, was to take an Alka-Seltzer. We all know this medication has to be dissolved in water, but she didn't have time. As a truck stopped at the end of her walkway, Grandma grabbed her Bible, popped the alka-seltzer into her mouth, and shuffled hurriedly out, to hop into this vehicle. Grandma was horrified, as she gazed up into the face of a totally strange man! With foam frothing out of her mouth she exclaimed, 'YOU'RE NOT SUZIE!' I'm convinced that this man had nightmares about this incident, for weeks afterwardPhoto: borrowed from Pixabay

That's hilarious! As soon as you said she popped an Alka-Seltzer without dissolving it in water, I knew there was going to be some kind of incident involving foaming at the mouth! What makes it so funny was that it involved a complete stranger!
