Cream Soda Smile

Cream Soda Smile — Originally uploaded by LexnGer

The other day Saul Colt invited a bunch of folks over to the ZooCasa offices. Before Saul’s presentataion on how How Building Communities Is Like Dating A Pretty Girl

The presentation was amusing and Saul had some excellent points about community building and the metaphor fit, though even at the end of the presentation I was at a lost as to why Social Media is like dating a “pretty” girl as opposed to a homely one. Or even why a “girl” versus a “woman”. Or, for that matter, even why it was a female… but I digress along one of my standard paths of digression.

To the surprise of many, there were cans of Cream Soda along side the Diet Coke, Orange Crush and pizza. We had a lively discussion about how long it had been since any of us had seen, let alone consumed Cream Soda.

Then Miranda boldly reached out, grabbed a pink can, cracked it open and drank it!

I wonder if Building Community is like serving Cream Soda to pretty women?

    I do love my cream soda. I tend to buy it whenever I’m at a Jamaican (read roti) restaurant. Jamaican’s seem to love their cream soda – the clear stuff, not the pink stuff.
    I also used to get a heavily vanilla flavoured cream soda at 7-11, but they no longer carry it.


What do you think?
