Wanted Root Beer.
I would have settled for a Diet Coke or anything cold and fizzy.
Skipped McDonalds because of three cars waiting at the Drive-Through.
Skipped the convenience store because I felt lazy to park the car.
At the mall, I went to the juice seller, ordered a Mango juice instead.
The lady taking the order heard Mango Smoothie and that is what she shouted to her colleague behind the counter.
I heard it but did nothing.
I got the Mango Smoothie, forced myself through half of it, and then threw the rest into the garbage.
Wasted perfectly edible Mango, water, and all that went into the Smoothie.
I still crave a Root Beer.
