Liquid Summer



Ah Summer, it hasn’t really arrived until Country Time Lemonade commercials have told me that it’s almost over.  Those slow, dusty images of laughter in the golden sun lulled me into a false sense of security.  I would curl up for a snooze in my mental hammock. Then, that gentle-voiced announcer would BRING THE HAMMER DOWN, announcing there were only 30 days left of summer.  Coming from an official sponsor, that really stung.

This is the second reason I hate lemonade.  The first involves sitting at the end of a rural driveway waiting for customers.  The third involves Tom Collins—the man, not the drink.  However, serve me an Arnold Palmer (the drink or the man) and you’ve got a friend for life.

P.S. If you’re confused it’s because I could not find video of this ad anywhere.  I just found one with similar images and the same announcer.  If you find me video of the ad to which I refer, I will send you a prize.  Yes, it absolutely will be a coupon for Country Time Lemonade
