Most people actually like carbonation. Unfortunately, I don’t. (I wish I did; occasionally, I have spent hours swirling pop cans just to get some pain-free flavor).
Fortunately for me, Michael doesn’t either. Last night, we found the solution to all of our carbonation problems: blowing bubbles.
Basically, we wanted to have a date but were really exhausted, cause, y’know, we’re parents and feel like our bodies have just been on the wrong side of a car wash.
So we broke out our two favorite date night beverages–whole milk and martinelli’s apple cider–and commenced sending telepathic heart emoji’s at each other while sipping our drinks with dixie bendy straws.
But, being well trained by my toddler, and avoiding sipping too much cider at once (on account of the carbonation I don’t actually like), I started blowing bubbles in my cider, at which point Michael said, “I bet milk blows better bubbles.”
So we blew bubbles for the next forty seconds, and would have for much longer if it weren’t for the headache I was incurring from trying to compete with Michael’s milk bubbles. (Yeah. Milk bubbles annihilate cider bubbles.)
When I went back to sipping my cider, it was perfect. No cankerous carbonation pricking my tongue, just a very fine fizz. That’s all.
