So, I realize I’m wrong about this. But I never ever ever thought of Country Time Lemonade as drink until my good friend, Gene, pointed it out to me.
This was a real conversation we had whilst eating hummus in my living room just now:
Me: I’m a big juice drinker, but I think I’ll even limit my kid’s intake of real 100 percent juice. I’ll give them water and milk instead.
Gene: Real juice as opposed to fake juice.
Me: *laugh* right. No, I mean like, I won’t have them drinking like, red drink.
Gene: You won’t give your kids drink?
Me: I won’t give them anything that I don’t drink myself and I don’t drink drink. I don’t just sit around drinking gallons of red drink!
Gene: So you don’t drink drink, so if you drink it, then it isn’t drink?
Gene: So you don’t drink like, grape drink or anything powdered.
Me: *side eye* I’ve got Country Time in my cupboard now, but Country time isn’t drink. It’s lemonade.
Gene: *blank stare*
Me: It’s not drink.
Gene: If I pour water in Fun Dip, it’s just water in Fun Dip. If I pour water in Country Time, that’s drink.
Me: But I put lemons in it!
