While sitting on the sidelines of my niece's lacrosse game today I noted a pink can sitting in the cup holder of a canvas chair to my left. I did a double take. It couldn't be.
"Is that a Tab that you're drinking?" I asked.
"It sure is!" was the reply.
What followed was a solid three-minute conversation of the good ol' days of Tab; the only diet drink there was before the rollout of Diet Coke. The two of us reminisced about way back then and other drinks that have faded from view like Fresca. We also decided that knowing so much about something like Tab or Fresca most certainly dates us a little.
I could describe the woman who sat next to me on the field as middle-aged, but I won't. You see I too was a pretty big Tab drinker back in the day.
