Zing,Zang, and Tang

(Be forewarned: This is a semi-true story using my little alien buddies. It really did happen! Just not to them.)

Zing and Zang opted to eat inside. They’d learned to enjoy orange juice, just like earth people.

The waitress took their order. “I’ll bring your OJ right away so you can enjoy it while you wait.”

“Ah, real orange juice right here in Florida! I wonder if it will be freshly squeezed?” asked Zang.

“Real orange trees right outside! I’ll bet it is!” Zing replied.

They both took their first sip, then looked at each other in dismay.

“Blech! What IS this?”

“Why, it’s Tang!” smiled the waitress.

Tang. In Florida. Land of sunshine and oranges.

      1. I’ve read about both those products–I love British mysteries–but have never sampled either one. Don’t think I’ve seen them in our grocery stores, either. Next time I go to a favorite tea house, I’ll have to inquire 🙂

  1. I can just imagine the disappointment on their little faces. Tang… definitely does NOT taste like orange juice. Can’t recall the last time I even saw a jar of Tang, let alone taste it. I used to love it when I was little, though.

  2. Dear Linda,

    How disappointing. Zing and Zang came so far to visit the Sunshine State. To quote Buzz Aldrin, “Tang sucks!” (Especially when you had your taste buds set for fresh squeezed orange juice.) Good one.
