both sides now

You know the repulsion that stuns you when you take a sip of some drink you think is going to be something else?

You expect coke and get milk?
You anticipate milk and you get white wine?

It goes beyond disappointed expectations; it’s not just taste but texture.

Isn’t it somehow like drinking the expected and the unexpected beverage mixed together? A sudden fluid pollution, as if you’ve poisoned yourself?

Worse is when you go into work with the expectation that teh day is going to be quiet.
