The Pub

“Just what the heck is that supposed to be? Are you really going to drink it?”
“Yes. Have you ever tried it yourself?
“No, And I never would! I can imagine the taste”
“Imagining isn’t the same as tasting, you know…”
“True, but I know that I don’t want to drink it, and that’s enough”
“Ah, Fair enough! Well, here comes my drink!”
“At least it doesn’t look bad”
“Why don’t you try it? My wife says it’s the best thing she ever made!”
“Wh.. What!?”
“Here… Go on, have a sip”
“Wh… Why?”
“So you’ll know its awesome”
“I… I don’t want to!”
“Oh please! Here’s a chance to explore something new, and you’re just backing out. The worst that could happen is you could die!”
“Wh… What! What do you mean die! I don’t want to die!”
“Oh jeez… Relax. Just try a sip, if you don’t like it, return it back.”
“OH! I got scared for a moment there. Alright, I’ll try a sip”
“Great. Here you go”
