How about a nice dish of fish sherbert?
…Jones Soda is offering Salmon Soda, tinted a beguiling orange, with—as the company’s prexy says—“a smoked salmon aroma.”
…The company (seriously, you will never convince HA that this company urine-tests) also offers turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie flavored drinks, although these obviously are quite seasonal.
…This puts HA in mind of her family’s custom of joking about fish sherbert as the most disgusting food imaginable. Halibut Ripple, Salmon Swirl, yes, HA and her posse have advanced this repugnant concept in some detail.
…Best HA diet plan ever? A nice dish of fish sherbert before every meal!
…This also reminds HA of her mother’s custom of cutting cals by ordering cottage cheese with chocolate sauce in restaurants. One time, a gum-smackin,’ Flo-type waitress shot back: “How about some cheesecake with gravy, hon?”
