Down The Hatch and Down The Drain

https://fivedotoh.com/2020/09/02/fowc-with-fandango-odd/

When I was about 13 or 14 years old, a now-defunct diet soda company came out with a new flavor, Pink Grapefruit.
Mom and I decided to try it, so we bought a bottle, just one, in case we didn’t like it.

Buying only one bottle turned out to be a wise decision.

After the soda had been in the refrigerator long enough to get cold, it was time for the taste test. Mom poured a little bit into two glasses, and we drank.
That soda tasted odd. No, I take that back. It tasted awful, horrible, terrible… just plain lousy!
Mom and I exchanged looks, and the rest of the bottle went down the drain.
