Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

One should choose his poisons wisely. Today, we went to a local pub and I saw this among the guest ciders. Lilley'sMango Cider. There were guest ales too, but apparently they also offer guest ciders. It is summer, it is hot, mango is a summery fruit, this looked exotic, so I thought I'd give it a try, a half pint of this cider after I had my usual pint of ale. That was a mistake. Not that it did not tasted nice. It did, at least at first. Then there is a lingering aftertaste that was far too sweet. I ended up feeling a tad nauseous and the heat didn't make things better. I know I had drunk beer before, but the cider was the treacherous drink I had. It's only a few hours afterwards that I started feeling better. Moral of the story: don't drink sweet drinks during a heatwave. Maybe avoid alcohol altogether.
