Yoo Hoo...are you out there???
Once again we come full circle in the week and meet up with other AT friends to participate in Jenny Matlock's AlphabeThurday excercise. We are slowly finishing up the alphabet. This week it's all about the letter "Y"
My "Y" stands for Yoo Hoo
You know...the drink Yoo Hoo?
Do you drink Yoo Hoo?
I don't. I don't like milk. I 've never liked it, but for some reason it was the "Y" word that popped into my head.
Yoo Hoo originated in New Jersey in the 1920's by Natale Olivieri. He discovered a process to produce a chocolate soft drink that would not spoil.
My husband loves Yoo Hoo. Every once in awhile he will ask me to pick up a six pack of bottled Yoo Hoo.
He usually reminisces about how he got pulled over by a local cop for drinking and driving. The police officer did not like my husband. He was the type of police officer that would write his own grandmother a ticket. I think he did at one time.
Well my hubby was no angel as a teenager. Let's just say he was humm...what I would call a rowdy grease monkey who liked fast cars.
Anyway, back to the story....
When the officer reached in the car to remove the "said bottle of beer" he was very upset to find out that my husband was drinking a Yoo Hoo. He gave my hubby a ticket anyway and when my husband went to court to fight it, the judge got mad at the officer when he found out it was just a bottle of Yoo Hoo. He threw out the ticket and scolded the officer in front of my husband. Probably the worst thing he could have done considering the rivalry between the cop and my husband.Then the judge called my hubby by name..."I don't want to see you in here again either!"
Weeeeelll some guys just get all excited when they reminisce over stuff like that. Like that was something to be proud of.
Now the hubby is an old man. Drives like one too. But he still likes to reminisce about the old days over an ice cold Yoo Hoo.
