takes me back

There was something about drinking a soda from a bottle.  I had a particular fondness for Grapico.  I drink the diet Grapico from a can these days, but drinking from a can limits the experience that I remember.  I liked the bumpiness of the bottle, and the feel of the chill on the bottle.  As with most colas, sipping a cold beverage from a bottle makes the treat somehow complete.

If I could go back in time.  I'd go to Claytons and draw me an ice cold Grapico from their soda chest.  I'd pop that cap and drink it slow.  I'd take a little time to browse through the comic book rack.  It would be great to go back, just long enough for a taste of it.
