Just like how I remember it . . .

Remember back when you were a kid, you slugged your way into the corner store after riding your bike around the neighborhood all summer afternoon, and you wanted, no needed, something to drink real bad, and there was the slushy machine whirring away, humming its inexorable, irresistible serenade to your thirst like some Slushy Siren Song, when you didn’t know what a Siren was let alone a song by one, but you felt that desperate pull, as strong as a hunger pang or the sexual impulse, before you knew what real hunger or sex was even.
