... aye that was something I should have done trying out the "Kool-Aid" unsweetened soft drink mix today. I do NOT blame Dawn who send it to me representing "real US sweet things". I entierly blame myself and my looks like "Ahoi-Brause" probably gets prepared the same way.
Anyone of you whoe doesn't know "Kool-Aid" it's basicly citric acid (the stuff you use to descale pots and the shower) .. ehhm anyway to get to the point.
I innocently poured the content of the package into a glass filled it up with water and took a sip, just expecting it to be a little sour and sweet and probably strawberry/cherry/raspberry tasty-ish judging from the colour. That was one terribly big huge mistake.
So after I went through that experience I first drank a lot more plain water just to get some sort of feeling back. And then I look on the package, and ohh yes on the back there it says:
Serv 1/8 package (0.9g) (makes 8 fl oz) Servings 8
Aye I better should have red that strange American decieving wrapping before I tried it out and not just assumed ...
Deciding that I needed some positive experience after that sour shock I went into town and raided the library. I have enough CDs, DVDs and books for the next few weeks and only 7 days before I have to bring them back.
