The great metallic aftertaste

Here goes another suggestion:

While you're undergoing a chemo treatment and the nurse asks you if you would like something to drink, don't ask for something you like.
If you do, the metallic taste of the drugs will ruin the great taste of the drink you liked and you'll no longer enjoy it.

So far, it's been:
*water
*sprite
*v-8
*dr. pepper

Go with nothing if you can.
