So, I'm at the store the other day and out of the corner of my eye I caught an end-cap with Kool-Aid packets on sale - 10 for a dollar. I don't really have much of a sweet tooth but for some reason the raspberry flavored one sounded refreshing. It's been a hundred years since I have luxuriated in some cool sweet Kool-Aid. I bought three. I got home and went straight to serving one up, I followed the instructions but lessened the sugar by a bit and as I stirred the ingredients it was not turning raspberry red instead it remained clear. I went back to the package and it was indeed a clear raspberry drink. BUT - to the eye the sugar made the liquid a little thicker and it immediately made me think of the concoction that I had to drink the night before my colonoscopy. The concoction that is raspberry flavor-ish, very bitter and makes you sit on the toilet for hours. I got a glass, filled it with ice and prepared a nice beverage. I took one gulp and gagged - I just couldn't get the colonoscopy concoction out of my mind. I tried again - I gagged again. I poured the entire pitcher down the drain. And the power of suggestion made me run for the restroom.
