Aaaaaahhhh, summer means the beginning of yet another seasonal tradition, SONIC!!!! Yes, it’s seasonal, like Christmas and mom’s fudge, like fall and apple cider, like spring and Easter eggs. I can’t go to Sonic when it’s cold, but in the heat? Bring it on!
My Man asked me last night if I wanted to go before the softball game. (I guess it was kinda like a mini date.) He knows I love it. He knows I have a weakness for sipping on an ice cold drink while watching a game. He knows…
So we make our way to the classic, drive up. Ohhhh, what to choose! They’ve added so many flavors since last year. Should I get a shake because they’re half price and yummy or a slushie or a pop or a flavored tea??? Or what about just plain ol’ ice cream or a candy bar shake thing or a blended coffee?
We decide to share a large drink. I let him pick what to order because, like I said, The Man knows and he’s nice like that.
So, five minutes later, we pull out of the parking spot, and I’m sipping on our drink. Oh, what is it? Why, a cherry vanilla Dr. Pepper easy on the ice, of course! Yes, I always pull up and wonder what I’m going to order; I always sit there for several minutes weighing the choices; and 90% of the time, since I was in high school, that is my decision.
It’s a summer tradition, after all.
(Oh, but now-a-days I have to bring my own mints because Sonic changed theirs, and I don’ like ’em. The nerve! That’s okay. I came prepared with a pocketful.)
