Why is it that so many people order ginger ale on airplanes? (You never hear them ordering it in restaurants or bars.) Is it a comfort drink that we remember momma serving us when we were sick as kids? Are we seeking something that makes us feel safe ... because we're up there in the air, vulnerable from defying countless laws of physics?

From a reader via private email: Answer to your Ginger Ale question ... no caffeine - less bathroom trips. And ... less upsetting to the stomachs of the queasy fliers. Bathroom trips is the more likely reason. Just had to answer. Hope everything else is well with you.

Ginger is traditionally used to ease upset stomachs. I always drink ginger ale on airplanes because I always get airsick on planes.
