No Lemonade Served Here

I stopped drinking soft drinks a long time ago. I had grown up a big soft drink imbiber as my dad was a Pepsi Cola salesman. We used to have a crate of Pepsis sitting on the back porch. However, as an adult, I gradually learned to do without soft drinks. First of all, I knew they were not good for me, and I also knew that they added considerable cost to a meal when I ate out. I therefore switched to water unless lemonade was available. I love lemonade and always have. Certainly the lemonade provided by restaurants is sweetened to the point where any health benefit has been overcome by the amount of sugar. Still, a refreshing glass of lemonade must be more beneficial than a soft drink. That’s why I was so upset when I went to Taco Bell for my Mexican pizza and found that there was no lemonade listed on the roster of beverages. If it’s deletion is permanent, I guess I will revert to drinking just plain water, but it surely will be a disappointment not to get my free senior drink.
