So one day, my sisters and my mom and I went to the grocery store. Right outside of the store there was a supply of White Claw. White Claw is an alcoholic sparkling water drink, but we did not know. We got the pack of White Claw because we like sparkling water, and we left.

We came back home. I took a can, and I drank it. “It was good,” I said, “but strong.” My sister drank some, my other sister drank some, my mom drank some, and by that time, there was only a can left. “It was so good,” I said. But, it did hurt my stomach a little.

My dad was coming back from a business trip and he came back at the wrong time. By the time he was back, the White Claw was gone, but that did not stop him. While we were watching tv my dad was looking at the back of the empty can. “Hard Seltzer… HARD SELTZER!” My dad said. “Oooooh, that’s why,” I said.
