My buddy K is about to embark on the greatest adventure of her life, parenthood! Wanting to send her something unique, I spotted Gripe Water at the pharmacy a few weeks ago, and hoped it would make her laugh as much as I did. The word gripe makes me think of an adult having a bitch session, not a baby with gastrointestinal distress. After I found it at the pharmacy, I went back to the office and asked one of my co-workers what connotations the word "gripe" conjured and they had the same feeling I did. They were just as baffled by gripe water as I was.
