Mmmmmmmmmmmmm..... Diet Coke

For those of you who know me, you know that Diet Coke is my smack of choice. I LOVE Diet Coke. I could write Sonnets and wax poetic about the wonderfulness of Diet Coke. There is nothing quite like the crrrrrrrrrrck-shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh sound when you open a 2 liter for the first time. I think that sound could bring me out of a coma. It's so bad that I have saved several of the largest, plastic cups from McDonalds (lids included) and they are used EXCLUSIVELY for Diet coke. I have one sitting beside me, sweating gently, as we speak! lol

I could live quite happily on a deserted island with my laptop and a supply of Diet Coke and Popcorn (but with DSL.... Not dial up! lol) I would mainline it strictly for the caffine, with a 2 liter hung on an IV pole, if that wouldn't bypass me getting to savor the carbonated goodness dancing across my thrilled palate!

That all being said....

We almost had a BAAAAAAAAAAAD scene at the Commissary this morning!! I walked around the corner to grab a 2 liter of diet coke and all I saw was ACRES AND ACRES of EMPTY racks!!


I swear I almost had a seizure right there!! Tears were forming in my eyes, and I think I was frothing at the mouth a little.

It was so bad that I *almost* settled for one of the 3 remaining bottles of CAFFINE FREE Diet coke that were huddled in the middle of the rack.... like wagons circled on the prarie, hunkered down and waiting for the indians to attack. I was actually REACHING for one, when out of the corner of my eye, I caught a tiny glimpse of grey. I turned, went up on my tippiest, tippy toes and LO AND BEHOLD!! There, on the very top rack, ONE LONE 2 liter was hiding behind the Cherry Coke!!

I think I scared the guy in front of me when I squealed with excitement! Feet on the bottom rack, one hand clinging for dear life and boobs resting over the metal upside-down U's later, I claimed my prize! I kept thinking that it would be REALLY bad if I fell backwards with my boob caught in the rack (oh lol.... my rack in the rack!!) I mean, yeah, my boobs are big and all... but they're not particularly stretchy.....

I kept that sucker firmly tucked in a football hold all the way to the register. Yeah... I risked life and boob for that 2 liter and I was NOT going to let it go!!
