flavored with age

Suffer, Curry, as I have suffered

I got this set of Pepsi glasses from 1978, seen, when I was a short-pants motherfucker reading funnybooks and eating Seven-Up bars from Seven-Eleven. And these Pepsi glasses, they have superheroes on them.

One of them is Aquaman, who is portrayed for some reason (probably saving on ink) as having orange hair exactly the same color as his chainmail tunic. He is portrayed as swimming through the water, with little bubbles streaming forth from his head. And the thing is, I don't like Aquaman. So I like to drink brown soda pop out of this glass, and pretend that Aquaman has been thrown into a swimming pool filled with motor oil. "Drown, Aquaman," I say to my glass of diet Dr. Pepper. "Drown in the oil."

I am a lonely man.
