One writer’s personal journey into the surprisingly kind, supportive world of fizz
I’m waiting in line at the post office with a 2lb 13oz package that I’m about to mail to two near-strangers who live all the way across the country. We’ve met exactly once, through Skype. Inside the package is a gift I’m really hoping they like. At the very least, I hope it doesn’t explode in transit. That sounds a hell of a lot scarier than it actually is – I just really want this parcel to make it to its destination. And there’s a decent chance it might not, because inside all the bubble wrap are two bottles of Hal’s New York Limited Edition Coffee Seltzer.
For people like us, seltzer is way more than just a beverage.
