When I was younger there was a “fast” food restaurant in our town call Sandy’s. One of the drinks they offered was a cherry slush. That was the first time I have ever heard of them and I loved them. Nowadays cherry and a million other flavors are common and I still like them. I don’t get cherry like I used to because of all the choices.
This summer I have tried a different approach to my slush selection process. Maybe this fits into one of the Escape Plan challenges. The one day when my wife and I were going for one of our evening treats she said that she was getting a medium strawberry cone. I told her that I was wondering what flavor I was going to get today. She said, “don’t you know?” I said, “No.” What I’d been doing is starting at the top of the list of 12 flavors that they offer and each time I get the next flavor on the list so I really don’t know what flavor I’m getting (unless I cheat and look ahead). Some of the choices are not my favorite but I’ve never had some of them before and maybe they’ll become a favorite!
Also, there is a special way to drink a slush, too. “No lid please!” And don’t use a straw. The other day when I told the girl I didn’t want a lid, she asked if I wanted a spoon. I said. “That’s a good idea, I hadn’t thought about that, but no thanks!”
Remember to get the most mileage out of your slush, don’t use a straw, just drink it!
