No Giggles or Munchies

The water where I live tastes awful, so I usually add something to it if I want to actually drink some. Normally I like the raspberry flavored drink mixes (Wyler's brand, mostly). They come in the individual serving packets and, if you buy them at Walgreens, they're pretty reasonable. You get eight packets for a dollar. But this isn't an ad for Walgreens or for Wyler's.

The other day I ran out of the raspberry flavor, so I started drinking the Iced Tea with Peach. It tastes okay. But what caught my attention is the smell. As I was drinking I noticed the distinct odor of marijuana. Yes. That's what I said. Marijuana.

Okay, let's get beyond the juvenile "How do you know what marijuana smells like?" question. Because I've smoked it, okay. And I inhaled. But that was in a former life. Now, back to the drink mix.

I have drunk a few of these, now, in the past few days and each one, no matter how hard I try to imagine otherwise, smells like marijuana.

If you want to try this yourself, here's what you do. Go out and get the Wyler's Light Iced Tea with Peach (sugar free; UPC 0 72392 35160 2*), mix up a glass (not a bottle, but a glass) and prepare to take a sip. Before you sip, as the liquid gets to your lip, inhale through your nose. Then come back here and tell me if I'm right or wrong.
*this UPC might not be the same if you don't buy them at Walgreens

Only you, Ms. Q. Only you.

Did I ever inhale. I plead the fifth. Or I could just say if I did it was so long ago I don't remember.

Or, the real answer: That's what college was for, right?
