I've been hearing for weeks now from different people how Sonic makes these fantastic pina coloda slushies. Evidently they are all the rage, so after I woke up from my Sunday afternoon nap, I was thirsty and groggy and trying to procrastinate doing my chores so I decided I'd make the trek to the Sonic closest to my house to get one of these famed slushies.
I drove all the way up there, and got in the drive thru line. It was very busy there and there were several cars both in front of and behind me. When it was my turn to order, I very confidently asked for the pina coloda slush and the guy taking my order responded:
"We don't have the pina coloda here"
I was devastated. And also a bit flustered ... there were cars behind me so I couldn't exactly hem and haw and take my time making a decision. So I asked the flavors and the man rattled them off to me. He mentioned that they had both PINEAPPLE and COCONUT slushies, but I was so flustered that I just wasn't thinking right so I just said "I'll have a strawberry one, thanks".
I was immediately dejected about it. Didn't even want the stupid strawberry one but I figured I probably didn't need the extra calories anyway. Then as I was waiting for my inferior slushie, I started thinking ... why can't they just mix coconut and pineapple for me? (Didn't think of that when I was ordering ... I know, stupid) So when the guy brought my drink out to me, I figured I'd just ask and see what he said.
Me: "Hey, I have a question ... the guy taking my order told me that yall didn't have pina coloda slushies, but can't you just mix pineapple and coconut"
Sonic Guy: "Yeah, I don't see why we couldn't do that"
Me: "Ummmmm ... is there any way I can get one of those instead of this one" (You'll never get anything you don't ask for)
Sonic Guy: "Yeah, did you want that in addition to the strawberry one?"
Me: "No, I really didn't even want strawberry, I just want the pina coloda, but I understand if you can't do that"
Sonic Guy: "Ah, I'll hook you up ... you just keep that strawberry one and I'll go make you the one you want"
AWESOME! (Special thanks to that nice, nice man)
So, he brought me the new slushie, I gave him a nice tip, and was on my way. I had to swing by Target to grab a few things so I took my delicious drink inside with me. I found the stuff I needed, and proceeded to the checkout counter. I set my stuff on the counter, and put my drink up on the little ledge while I got my wallet out.
I think you know where this is going.
I hadn't even pulled out my wallet, when I heard "BAM" ... my precious slushie had fallen to the ground. And spilled everywhere.
Karma, I guess.
(It was soooooo good though. I'll definitely be having one of those again in the near future.)
