Coca-Cola in a Plastic Bag
Many years ago when I visited Syria during the summer break, my friends and I used to go to a computer cafe to play PC games. After we finish gaming at around sunset, we would go to a corner store right beside the computer cafe to buy a carbonated drink. We ask for a Kazouz, which is an slang Arabic word for soda. The clerk would tell us if we want “black” or “red”, which meant Coke or Crush, respectively. So that he could send the glass cans back for recycling, he used to open it up for us and pour the drink in the bag. It was something new for me because I didn’t see such a thing in Eastern Kentucky. A couple of days ago I bought a glass Coca-Cola can from a gas station so I can try drinking Coke from a plastic bag. Sipping coke from a small, plastic bag has a unique taste.
