Do They Do This In Manhattan?
Sometime ago, my son and I stopped at a convenience store looking for gas. I ran inside to get us a drink. Lo and behold, they had real glass, traditional cokes.
And then it hit me...
I had let him grow to a teen without tasting a treat from my childhood that I used to take for granted.
Not Coca Cola...we're not that far out in the country!
Rather, the sweet, salty, fizzy blending of peanuts and coke in a glass bottle. It HAS to be the waisted glass bottle of yore or it will NOT taste the same.
So, I dashed back to the JEEP with 2 bags of peanuts and 2 cokes. A quick demonstration of the proper procedure and a new convert was born.
So now I am wondering. We did this all the time growing up in the glass soda bottle era.
Is this a southern thing?
Is it a country thing and done all over in rural areas?
Is it an everywhere thing and even done in Metropolis?
How 'bout it?
