what does 'je me ferais dorer la pilule' mean?
I tried google translate, DeepL Translate and bing translate, all gave me something about 'brown the pill', which just doesn't make sense. I am guessing, it means sunbathing.

Here is my answer to the same question posed by Lisa -
I think that you are correct. To get a tan / bask in the sun.
(Having something bronzed -- a causative faire construction)
It could also refer to making something a bit easier to accept in the sense of "sugar coating the pill"
I think it is a colloquialism meaning something like 'icing on the cake.' literally 'gilding the pill'
