FARMINGTON, MO—Outlining his lunchtime medication regimen, local second-grader Brandon Ross explained to reporters Wednesday that he likes to save his purple pills for last. “The purple ones are my favorites, so I put them over to the side and take them at the very end,” said Ross, 7, noting that he typically starts out his daily course of prescription drugs by taking both of his green pills, followed by popping all of his light blue tablets into his mouth at the same time. “I also have a bunch of red-and-yellow ones, and sometimes [classmate] Tyler [Erickson] shares one of his orange pills. Those are good.” Ross added that the only part of his prescription drug routine that he dislikes is the “weird pink ones,” which he immediately removes from his pill case and throws into the trash.
