When someone asks you “What is your favorite drink?” – do you automatically think they are referring to an alcoholic drink? Well – I do; and that’s where I take pause. I’m not a big drinker. Typically people talk about coming home from work and having a drink or a beer… I come home from work and grab a glass of milk. Is that weird?
If I had to name a favorite drink – I would have a hard time with that. My favorite would be dependent upon the situation. For example – after work, it would be a glass of milk. If I was out at a bar – it would be Southern Comfort & 7-up. At a fancy place – it would probably be a glass of wine and if it was after a work-out – it would be a glass of water (but that one doesn’t happen a lot!)
I don’t like anything bitter. Beer is a definite NO Thanks!! When I drink wine – it has to be a sweet wine. That’s why I love Southern Comfort – it’s very sweet.
When you compare me to my family – I am the light-weight of the family. Judy is pretty much a light-weight too. The others, like Mom & Lisa – like to have their drinks and they like them strong. Yuck! Mine need to be pretty weak if I’m going to be able to drink it.
Now, back to my favorite alcoholic drink. Southern Comfort & 7-up. I developed my love of this in college. I used to drink it like water and of course I got VERY sick on it. One time, I remember coming home for a weekend and Dad held a glass of something under my nose stating ” ‘Chelle – smells this. It smells like roses.” OMG – I almost lost it right there. It was a glass of straight Southern Comfort. I didn’t drink it again for many years.
Then it was Mom & Dad’s 40th wedding anniversary party and Grandma Doris, Dad and I finished off a VERY large bottle of SoCo ourselves. Again – I was VERY sick the next day. Finally – I’ve learned to drink it in moderation – Sometimes.
I guess I’d have to say I have 2 favorite drinks – the first being milk and the second would be SoCo & 7-up. How is that for diametric opposites? Well – that’s typical for a Sidetracked Sister – don’t you think?
