Shiny Medal and Tapioca Express!
I won a medal!!!!!!! At the Science Olympiad Regionals! Scioly (Science Olympiads) is a science competition with different events. I participated in Astronomy (bleh) and Food Science(Whee). My partner and I got third place in Food Science out of 14 teams! So, we got shiny bronze medals pictured above. Since the my school got third place in the entire competition, team A (not me) is going to the states competition! To celebrate, we decided to go the Tapex (Tapioca Express). The menu there was very weird... There were several types of drinks, including Snow Bubbles. I don't know what snow bubbles are, but the top of the list was Avocado Bubble :-? That sounds "interesting". These strange snow bubbles and the milk tea sounded filling, and since I was already full, I decided to get honeydew juice. I saw them put slices of honeydew in a blender, and I thought "Ooh, real fruit!" Then I saw them add bright green liquid and sugar the fruit... I ordered the juice with tapioca because I wanted to try tapioca once again.
The drink was good, tasty, but a tad too sweet. The tapioca was amusing. I had trouble chewing it, and I think it grew inside my stomach.
