Current Obscure Product Obsession: Schweppes Bitter Lemon

If you were born anytime before the advent of, say, Crystal Pepsi, then you may remember a time when Schweppes Bitter Lemon was widely available and people actually drank it.

Husband and Husband

“Let’s go to Toronto and get married!” says my boyfriend, all sparkly. He says this because it’s now legal for queers to get married a couple thousand miles away in Canada. And I approve of that. In fact, I think it would be nice if the same thing were available...…
