It occurs to me on occasion that most of the obstacles, judgments, frustrations, disappointments, and embarrassments in my life could have been avoided if I had only drunk the kool-aid of the moment. However, then I realize that everything meaningful I have ever done was a result of not drinking the kool-aid.
This thought is, of course, no reflection on Kraft Kool-Aid®, which is a rainbow-flavored beverage enjoyed by millions since 1927, as chronicled in this History of Kool-Aid at The Hastings Museum in Nebraska.
Speaking of history, the phrase “drinking the kool-aid” has a rather dark origin .
