May Mania ~ Stretch #29

Usually when we're thirsty, we just guzzle liquids and don't give much thought to any sensations beyond taste. We desire to quench thirst and that's about it. But there's more to a drink than taste and the feel of it in your mouth and sliding down your throat. Discover the sensory explosion in one of your favorite drinks.

Once you have your favorite drink in hand, describe everything about it. Is it fizzing? Are effervescent bubbles tickling your upper lip or steam? How does it smell, taste and feel in your mouth. What kind of things does it do to your body. Does it calm, delight you or make you tingle all over. Does it warm you up, cool you off? Write down all of your impressions. Lemonade reminds me of summer, swimming and eating watermelon, even if I drink it in the dead of winter. Does your drink draw connections to seasons or memories? Explore it all and think outside the box.

I love discovering the extra things that often get overlooked. So go find for some literary treasures in refreshments.
