Stopped at 7-11 today and bought a cherry Slurpee. Sort of a nostalgia thing, I guess. Actually, truth is, I needed to break a $50 and a Slurpee seemed a good way to do that.
Anyway--got my Slurpee and a bag of Doritos. Those buggers leave you with bad breath, so to counter that, I popped a piece of Dentyne Ice gum into my mouth.
And here's the moral of today's story: Never, never, never chew mint gum and slurp a cherry Slurpee. EVER.
Tastes like all those gawd-awful cherry cold syrups we subject ourselves to in an effort to fight aches, sniffles, coughs, and sleeplessness when we're sick.
NEVER, EVER, EVER. Ruined the Slurpee for me. As I type this, it's sitting in the cupholder in my car, melting.
