My lips will not touch that thing!
City slicker that I was, the thought of drinking after others made me sick. Boy cousin cooties, germy unbrushed teeth, back wash, floaters, YUCK!
We took ten year old Nicholas and four year old Nicole for a rootbeer float and I asked if he'd be willing to share with his sister. I recognized the look on his face. That had to be my expression the first time I realized it was a shared dipper and to quench my thirst, it was do or die. I did it!
"Umm, Nana, I sort of have a little bit of a problem drinking after other people, especially my sister."
I hugged him and said, "Buddy, I understand."
In high school when the kids were dumping peanuts in Cokes and passing the bottle around, I would not partake.
Is it just me and Nicholas? Do you have an aversion to drinking after others?
