A trip to our beloved Sonic seemed like a perfectly swell end to the day's errands-- a treat for the road, if you will. One very large *gulp* Route 44 Diet Coke for Mommy and a Blue Coconut Cream Slush to reward my handsome 3-year-old for being such a good boy as we traipsed all over town. Really, he was a trooper! Until (insert doom music here) I glance back over my shoulder right as that angelic 3-year-old jams the straw through the bottom of the blasted styrofoam cup. Yes, neon blue, STICKY, half-frozen beverage is pouring out of the perfect straw sized hole, all over my car. Hey Sonic execs-- Do you have kids??? You must not. Because no drive-thru in their right mind would use such an easily permeated container to house drinks most likely consumed in the car. Not to mention the devastation it caused when this cute little guy didn't get his well deserved treat. -------------->
Now I'm not saying we're boycotting Sonic just yet. Oh no. We love the perfectly fried popcorn chicken and ooey-gooey grilled cheese + tomato sandwiches far too much for that. But I'll probably be forced (along with millions of other toddler toting Americans.) to start double-cupping. And, well, that's just not good for the environment. I'd hate to have THAT hanging over my head if I were you. Just sayin'.
