Ginger Ale

Here’s an oddity for you that I was just talking about with the Better 3/4ths. When I was growing up and caught the flu, sometimes the only thing that I could keep down was Ginger Ale. Now, many years later, if I drink it when I’m feeling perfectly fine, I’ll get that blah sick feeling.

I know it’s completely in my head, but Ginger Ale is so closely associated with feelings of nausea that it actually can cause it for me. At the same time, when I’m actually sick and curled up in a little ball of misery, it’s the one and only thing that I can turn to with any sort of confidence and it actually makes me feel better. Weird eh?
