Was invited to a, rather formal, social gathering, just Sunday night there.I have bit of a sugar addiction but cherry coke or cherry beer is sickingly sweet. Like drinking marcipan.
'Yes, I'll have a drink, thank you'.
Having duly noted it was a, 'wine & nibbles evening' (local Dramatic Society, fundraising), still speculatively ventured, 'Vodka and diet cola, please'?
Kind response: 'I know we have some vodka somewhere and sure we have some of that other stuff as well...'.
So... on receipt of same and having a rather large swig...
Something is instantaneously not right...
'Diet cola'? One enquires...
'We only have the the cherry kind, hope that's alright'...
The word, 'abomination' exists for a reason...
