I’d Sacrifice My Gut For You

As of today, I’m awarding myself The Best Table Manners Award for drinking the one type of juice I absolutely detest out of politeness.

I was hanging out with a friend of mine at her place and I asked her if she had anything I could drink. She asked if I like orange juice and I said yes without a second thought. When she came back, she handed me a cup of orange juice with pulp in it, not knowing how much I hate pulp. I thanked her and maintained a smile on my face. I cringed at the sight of the pulp swimming around in the juice. To me, drinking pulpy juice feels like an invasion of tiny slugs crawling all over my tongue and down my throat. Just thinking about it makes me shiver!

Unfortunately, it was the only juice she had. I didn’t dare tell her how much I refuse to drink it but I didn’t want to be rude to her. I would feel terrible if she had to dump it in the sink. What a waste.  I had the idea that she could try and pour it back in the plastic jug, but the awkwardness and guilt would still be there. It would have been funny to watch though. But I digress.

So guess what happened?

I drank that cup of nastiness like a freaking champ! Damn, am I a good friend or what?

Too bad there wasn’t vodka in it.

  1. That first sentence made me laugh out loud. Good on you. You’re a better friend than me… I was at a bar once and one of my girlfriends insisted on buying the next drink, I said I didn’t have a preference. What I should have said was “anything but beer”. Guess what she bought me? I literally vomit immediately if I drink beer because it is that repulsive to me, I couldn’t even pretend to put it away.

  7. Haha i love this post! Ouch- good manners are sometimes so annoying to follow. And I can relate to this story, I had to bring a nasty juice once too, and i couldn’t do anything about it except for giving that helpless look to my sister who was facing the exact situation while we sat at a friend’s drawing room! 😀
