is that when I was little
like envied envied
my brother's ear infection medicine.
He had ear infections all. the. time.
course...it could have only been once or twice
but in my childhood cerebellum I recall it being
And all. the. time.
he got to have the yummy bubble gum medicine.
I got nuthin.
nothin except for what I could lick out of the cap when no one was looking.
I'm pretty sure that I should seek out some therapy or something to help me deal with this.
But that's for another day.
Enter the year 2012.
Jason breaks his jaw
and we are at the commissary last week filling our cart with all things liquid and blendable.
He's kinda just throwing things in left and right
and I'm totally letting him
cuz ya know
I feel bad for him.
I was pretty amped up the first week or so after the accident,
obsessively analyzing what he was eating.....errrr drinking....errrr dreating?....
and how I could make it fatter or increase his caloric intake
but then as he continued to lose weight anyway I now feed him what I can and he fills in with whatever liquids taste good
and we realize life will go on and he will gain it back soon enough.
Last night I was a hankerin for a cold drink
saw this in the fridge
realized it was low calorie
and thought I should probably pay more attention next time to what he is putting in the cart
cuz ya know
"slenderize" isn't quite what we are going for here.
But I digress
I took a sip
And oh HALLELUJAH
can you believe it?
It tastes exactly like the bubblegum medicine of the 80's!
It was as if my taste buds in that moment were rocketed back to the days of neon, banana clips and leg-warmers and were belting out Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.
So if you
somehow had a thing for bubble gum medicine back in the day.
Cry yourself to sleep no more
and go getcha some of this.
Oh, and if your not like me
find this weird
and question my mental stability as it relates to drinking things that taste like bubble gum
your still welcome.
Cuz it's that good.
