I LOVE cherry coke. I always have. I like coke with real cherry syrup, but I really like the normal Cherry Coke product itself.
I had been doing really good in decreasing my soda intake. Mid-year last year I realized I needed to cut back. I had been having a soda with lunch and then again with dinner and sometimes, on the really crazy nights, I would have a THIRD soda in the evening. So I cut back and just had one at lunch or dinner. Sometimes I would go a day or two without any and not even notice.
But then last September, I got a new job. And on the first day, the tour of the building included the kitchen, which included a never-ending supply of soda. Dr. Pepper is my second drink of choice and there it was...row after row of it. I knew it would be a challenge, but I have done spectacular at limiting my soda. I never have more than one a day at work, sometimes I don't even have that one- and make myself drink a couple of water bottles a day instead of reaching for another can. Every now and again, I will have a soda with dinner as well, but not on a daily basis.
Anyway, every now and again, I buy a 12-pack of soda. Which should last over two weeks no problem. However, for some reason, if i pour my Cherry Coke into a glass-a can of soda suddenly becomes like a shot glass full. I can seriously drink it down in probably less than 6 minutes. If I drink it from a can---it takes up to 20 minutes, if I finish at all. Weird.
What does this mean???
Am I bothering people by saying the word "soda"?
If I had a kegorator in my house, it wouldn't be beer that flows freely, it would definitely be Cherry Coke.
