I'm drinking a Barq's root beer. And I've noticed something interesting or strange about soda (I don't call it *pop*) is that when you're really thirsty, you drink it all very fast and then you almost immediately (well, me) want another. My favorite soda is Dr. Pepper. It's just got this flavor that can't be described. I don't like either Coke or Pepsi anymore. Today at the store I bought a 12 pack of Squirt (sometimes we like that) and some Barq's ( and a four pack of Guinness for me. (I'd been watching Anthony Bourdain's, No Reservations and he was in Ireland, and I swear in practically every shot, he was drinking a Guinness. Made me want one too!
