Question for native English speakers: how do you express, as colloquially as possible, that a drink doesn't quench your thirst? In Romanian, it would be (word for word transl., sort of) "it doesn't hold your thirst"; I'm wondering if something similar exists in English.
I was once asked by people who don't speak my native language why I prefer bottled water over tap water; when I candidly replied, in English, that tap water "doesn't satisfy me" (simply because I wasn't aware of a less snobbish way to put it), they looked weird at me. I'd, uh, like to avoid situations like that in the future.

Need a good intro sentence for your game-related video essay? Just say "[game] is one of my fffavourrrite games of aaaall time. In fact, I'd go as far as to say it's my favourite, period!", with emphasis in your speech.
I drank pumpkin spice latte once in 2017 and I'm not embarrassed to affirm it's since been a personal favourite.
Why the fuck is it only sold seasonally, though--and, more importantly, why do sellers NEVER seem to meet demand for it?! The reason I haven't had it since is because coffee bars are always fresh out of pumpkin spice whenever I go grab it. And I'm too lazy to prepare one myself but whatever. Talk about bad luck. It wasn't even that good, actually. Grumble, grumble...
Dusted off New Super Mario Bros. 2 and played on my old 5-shiny-stars save file. Out of boredom, I decided to use a certain trick that would increase my score quickly, which ended with me dying five times consecutively in a level. The White Super Leaf consequently appeared—now, I was mindful of the fact that it removes the shine in your save file stars, but this stupid IGN guide assured me that would only take effect if you pick up the leaf, which I didn’t.
Save game, quit game.
Suddenly, the shine on my old save file is gone… And I DID NOT pick up the leaf.
I remember a teacher in elementary school bringing up how Coca Cola is actually green before it’s given the characteristic brown dye (which is a myth, by the way). Everyone in my classroom went “EEEWWW”, which I found baffling because I woulda drunk that shit in a heartbeat—and I still would.
