Refills To Go

When Hubs and I go out to eat I usually order an Iced Tea or a Diet Coke. I know I should drink water. But water tastes blah and I don't like to drink plain water. So I maximize the $2.50 soft drink I purchase and I almost always get a drink to go at the end of the meal.

It drives Hubs craaaazy.

I'm not exactly sure why though. I mean this third (usually) drink makes my expenditure *almost* worth it. Right? You see I'm now getting old enough that I can say "Back when I was young soft drinks were $.99 or less at every meal." Now they are $2.50 and mostly ICE. So getting refills and getting them to go means I *might* end up consuming enough of the beverage. Oh the store owners hate when I ask for "only a little ice please."

When I don't get a drink to go Hubs' jaw usually drops and I am mocked. "What?!" (feigned shock and horror) "No drink to go?!" It happens. But not often.

I don't know why I decided to write about this. But I like my refills. I like getting To Go cups. I like my Iced Teas and Diet Cokes.

And that's all there really is to say about that.
