MY GRANDMOTHER ("""CLAIMS TO HAVE TO""") INVENTED THE ARNOLD PALMER

I learned the whole story at dinner tonight
  1. For as long as I can remember my nana has ordered half lemonade half iced tea, better known as an Arnold Palmer
  2. We always jokingly called it a Thelma Hallman
  3. Apparently, she was at a golf tournament in 1959 and poured herself half a cup from the iced tea jug and half from the lemonade jug
    Everyone thought she was ~*cRaZy*~
  4. When they asked her what that was, she said "I'll call it an Arnold Palmer"
  5. Then "100 years later" she saw him on TV and they asked him what he wanted to drink and he said "well I guess I'll have an Arnold Palmer but I don't know why they call it that!!!"
    This part of the story is completely unconfirmed
  6. (The official story is that Arnie drank it regularly at his home course and someone overheard him ordering it at the bar and called it "that Palmer drink")
    WHICH SOUNDS P CONVENIENT TO ME, PALMER
  7. But would this woman lie to you and me and the world???????
  8. So next time you want to quench your thirst with half a tangy lemonáde and half a refreshing iced tea, call it a Thelma Hallman in honor of the TRUE ORIGINAL
