Read on David Dust's blog that MillerCoors is ending the production of everyone's (least) favorite malt beverage, Zima.
Back in the day, when I would go country line dancing 3 - 4 times a week, if I wanted something alcoholic, I'd drink a Zima. I suppose I wasn't into beer at the time, and hard liquor left me too impaired to dance. In 1995, after a disastrous date with a guy I met on AOL, I changed my screen name to Zimagal1, as an avoidance tactic. I had a bottle of the stuff in front of me when I came up with the new moniker. Yes, I admit I was horribly uncool.
Zimagal1 was quite notorious in the Marylanders chat room, and I had a good time with that name. But then I became theminx and dropped Zima pretty much for good.
I haven't had a bottle of it in years, but still I'm vaguely sad that an era has come to an end.
