My Addiction. It's a Dirty Little Secret.

  I love it straight up cold without ice. And no straw (just remove the photo ice and straw in your mind...)  No diet drinks for me (yuck). I want the real stuff that can clean battery corrosion. The very same concoction that bubbles its way to the tender internal machinations of the Queen. Yes. That one. I tell myself I neeeeeeeed a little Cola each day to ward off migraines.  But my "little" has turned into a lot more than I planned. It's ridiculous that two 2-liter Cokes have mysteriously emptied themselves in the last 72 hours. Do you know that I am so ashamed of this that I've actually taken to buying them through the seedy downtown out-of-the-way drive-thru window where poor souls walk away with brown paper bags?

So, I promised myself today that for every four ounces of Coke I drink, I will also drink eight ounces of water. This habit must stop before I have to enter a 12-step program. Surely I have enough willpower to put the bottle down.
Maybe I was walking in my sleep again.
Or I may never sleep again.
Drip. Drip.

I have the same 'coke' addiction. But I do also drink lots of water.

Charles - The water part, in my case, needs improving. Good for you!

I prefer Diet Pepsi please. No ice. No straw.

Reminds me of a TV joke (an advert for cigars I think) that probably loses something in the retelling:

Man stands up amongst group of people:

"Hello, my name's Paul, and I -I I'm an al- alcoholic."

Lady in charge of group:

"Paul?"
"Yes?"
"This is the yoga class"

(Man lights up cigar)

I like the occasional Coke, with a brandy in it. ;)

I'm The Gal Herself and I, too, am a Coke-a-holic. I am unable to go cold turkey and instead bought a Sodastream machine. Once I hit my 2-coke-a-day limit, I switch to Sodastream ginger ale or root beer. (But not their cola; I'm a purist.) It's not as good for me as water, but it has less sugar and caffeine and it's cheaper than my beloved Coke. (Which I am drinking now.)

Shoes - You too??! A country with no ice in their drinks. They must lose a lot of money in restaurants that way... Just sayin'
See email. I'm so happy for you and those honors!
