Life with 'song and Adam (and Jack)

Background: This is Jack. Jack is the stupidest cat I have ever met. (Do not tell him that I secretly adore him.) And I am on a four-pill-a-day hardcore antibiotic regimen. CVS has a section on every pill-bottle label that describes the pill, and they describe this one as being "Swedish orange" in color. It looks red to us, but the red of a Swedish Fish, so maybe this is a Scandinavian thing. Difference in color perception. Anyway. We have taken to calling it the Swedish Orange Pill.

Me: "Crap! I forgot to take my Swedish Orange Pill with dinner. Adam, can you get it?"
Adam, fetching pill: "Here is your penultimate Swedish Orange Pill of the day."
Me: "Penultimate Swedish Orange Pill. That's my new band name."
Adam: "I knew you were going to say that."
Me: "Jack agrees. Jack says 'Yes, Mama, that is an excellent band name.'"
Adam: "Jack says 'I do not understand what any of those words mean. Except maybe 'Jack'.'"
Me: "Jack says 'But Mama has trained me to say 'Yes, Mama, that is an excellent band name' whenever she speaks.'"
