What is your favourite type of sweet drink?
For a long time I’d say something like either Pepsi or Cola, but I think lately it’s been orange juice. I’ve always loved orange juice –
though I’ve had quite a long time where it was a no-no because of my emetophobia as I once felt very awful and threw up after it and no matter how much I liked it, I would not have it, but over time my emetophobia has lessened enough that I can drink it with little to no emotional problem and I’ve figured it couldn’t be the orange juice that had caused it because there were many more factors involved – but recently I’ve been drinking a lot of it and I really love it. Another sweet drink I love but had a similar emetophobia-related association with is cocoa, and since I started drinking it again, I love it even more. So actually I don’t know which one I like more, cocoa or orange juice, but I have orange juice much more often. And when I drink cocoa it has to be strong so it isn’t all that very sweet.
Is there something special you feel like eating or drinking, at the moment?
It’s roasting hot here, and when that happens, I’m not really eating much. But I’d love some really delicious, cool drink. No, not cool, freezing! lol Yeah, with lots of ice in it. I’m generally a sucker for iced drinks, except for iced tea which I somehow don’t have any strong feelings to, and alcohol drinks, a lot of which I like, but I avoid alcohol these days all together as it makes me feel super crappy both physically and mentally and it’s not quite as yummy as coffee that I’d even feel very regretful about having to say goodbye to it, especially that the effects of alcohol are usually worse for me than coffee. I just love the sound of ice in the glass, and the feel of ice, I’ve always had that weird fantasy since I was a little kid that I’d love to have an endless supply of ice, or popsicles, or something, that wouldn’t melt, or at least not so quickly, so I could touch and lick them whenever and how much I wanted. I suppose it could be an indicator of something being wrong with me that I’m so obsessed with ice but I don’t care. I also love to suck the pieces of ice after I drink the drink, if only my teeth can bear it. So, I don’t know, it could be a milkshake, a creamy, not too strong, iced coffee, but I think most of all I’d like some freshly squeezed orange juice, preferably without the mashy orange bits but even with the mashy stuff would be okay. We had a carton of shop-bought orange juice last week, which would always be something, but it’s gone now, and I don’t even think we have ice cubes in the freezer at the moment.
