Liquids for Your Life

By Johna Ferguson

  1. Milk suckled from mother’s breast

  2. Milk poured from a glass bottle

  3. Kool-aid stands in summer

  4. Hot chocolate before the fireplace in winter

  5. Coke, mixed with soda, not in a bottle (cherry, lemon or chocolate flavored)

  6. Ice cream sodas at the drug store counter

  7. Coffee in the morning to wake one up

  8. Coffee in the evening to keep awake while studying

  9. Beer – introduced at college parties

  10. Champaign drunk at weddings

  11. Red wine with pizza on Friday nights

  12. Liquor served at parties after the children were all in school (scotch, vodka, whiskey)

  13. Milk now in cartons

  14. Decafe coffee, hopefully to help one’s heart

  15. Wine served at all times by everyone

  16. Bottled water, Wonder if Abe had his bottle on his long walk to school?

  17. Ensure, a tasty, nutritious supplement

  18. Liquid from a plastic pouch hanging above your bed

Oooh . . . the truth hurts! I enjoyed your list, and was reminded how much I did love ice cream sodas at the drug store counter and what happened to them??!! Every once in a while, I will make one for myself, but it's not quite the same as sitting at the drug store counter with a friend and savoring that wonderful combination of flavors. Thanks for the memories.

This was great!
Each of these brought back memories. Many could become life stories. But, I howled in horror when I reached #17, and as I visualized #18!

Johna,

Please just read what Sandy said and double it for me.

Loved your list.. Original...

Thanks for reminding me of the liquids I have consumed in my life.

I hope I never reach #18. Your list says it all.
