How do you like your Kool Aid?
Being that tonight is a recovery night,(although I did go to SNAP) I felt like trying to be a bit creative. One of the many comments Disney fans often hear is related to Kool Aid. You know that childhood drink, our moms always made for us. (I alway's liked lime) The jury is still out on how it was any better for us than soda pop though. My mom made it nearly every day during the summer months.
So what exactly is Kool Aid? Simply put, its a flavored power that you mix with sugar and 2 quarts of water. Who am I kidding you guys know this product. Less water means a stronger flavor, and of course more means a weaker flavor. The sugar gives it sweetness.
Have you ever been accused of drinking the Disney Kool Aid? The basic inference here would be that if you are a Disney Kool Aid drinker, you must be a true fanatic whose veins are full of the stuff. You live and breath Disney. I find it amusing, how I as a fan of Disney have been accused of drinking more than my fair share. Around my house you would think I never put my cup down. Which in my opinon isn't true.
Sorry to break this to you guys but there is more to life than Disney. I may like my Disney Kool Aid a little stronger than some, but at least there is some water in the mix. For me I would say that instead of 2 quarts of water I would use 1 1/4 quarts.
I truly love Disney but my vision is keen enough to realized that not everything they do is "golden". But this is not as place to express my feelings on the few things I wish Disney would do. Rather, I would like to pose the question to you. How much water would be in your own personal mix? Your answers can be anywhere from "I just open the packet and swallow" to how many quarts of water you add. For the purpose of the question lets consider 2 quarts as the standard baseline. To me a 2 quarter is a person who enjoys and appreciates the parks, would must likely visit again, and is close to "getting it" they way many of us do.
I am glad you guys liked the new chart I put up yesterday. Thanks Heath for putting it up in your side bar. I liked the idea so much, I have placed it in mine. Hope you all like todays pictures.
