Drinking The Kool-Aid

Kool-Aid, Kook-Aid, tastes great, Kool-Aid Kool-Aid, can’t wait!

Do you remember that slogan? You may also remember the nice frosty pitcher in the advertisement with the smiley face drawn on it.

Does anyone still keep a pitcher of Kool-Aid in the fridge for all the youngsters and sometimes adults, or has that been replaced with Gatorade and other flavored waters?

Remember when that was one of the first things Mother allowed you to make?

We must have drank gallons of the stuff – and that was before “sugar free.” That was before anyone could even conceive the thought that sodas and sugary drinks of large container size might be restricted.

Of course, Kool-Aid was and is made in your own home, so that is a rule we don’t have to worry about. Please pass the Kool-Aid.
