” You know what is really good for when you’re sick?”
This got my attention as I wasn’t feeling too perky…
” Coca cola.”
” Well it was when we were kids, but there was this other [ couldn’t understand] but I think that was like illegal in New Jersey.”
This is apparently really funny – I guess it’s a cultural thing.
“Here it would be what? Red Bull? Probably?”
” It’s that energy drink. ”
” Yeah like Coke. But you see, my sister…. she’s like all no-sugar right.”
“Yeah completely sugar-free.”
“Yeah I know, but like one day we were in Amsterdam and we just wanted a drink…”
“Yeah… and she kept going like… and I mean… we’re in the middle of nowhere right….”
“And we had to ask:’hey is this sugar free?’… I mean like in the… you know… anyway after awhile we were like: ‘just pick something! We’re thirsty! Come on we’re in Amsterdam!'”
“I mean… how do we know whether its like ‘sugar-free’ or not – we just wanted a drink.”
“It’s probably not even for the sugar.”
“Nah, it’s something to do with calories.”
I guess it is tricky… Diet Coke is billed as Cola Light… but there is that infamous drink called water. Which in Dutch if anyone with sugar-fears ever needs go translates as: water. I know… but might be worth trying it.
