Crisis, Mr. Flannery, Crisis

Here she is. Isn't she beautiful? One of my few vices in life. An ice cold Diet Coke.


There was a crisis here at Flannery Bay today relating to my Diet Coke. A Diet Coke Crisis! I was out. The last can was sitting empty on my desk.


The 12 pack of Diet Cherry Coke was gone. Only its rumpled coat lying in the trash.

The empties were overflowing the recycle bag.

I quickly searched my stash for one more can of the object of my desire. There was a can from the truck. All distended from freezing in the -20* weather.

There was the frozen half full bottle from the beverage tray in the truck, but that will take hours to defrost.

A friend was coming to visit. The owner of the 5 guest cats was coming to change the cat litter boxes. I called. PLEASE bring me a fix. Stop at the corner and buy me a 24 pack. And then I waited. Hours (or 15 minutes) later she arrived. A fresh 24 pack of the necessary elixir. I tore it open. I popped the tab.

I took a long cool blast. AHHHHHHHHHHH!. Crisis averted.

Mr. Flannery

Me too.
I've been popping pills and swigging cough syrup for days now trying to shake this flu....nothing, and I mean NOTHING made me feel as good as the 32oz Diet Coke my husband brought home for me last night.

You think the FDA needs to hear about this??? ;-)

I am giggling uncontrollably... do we need to have an intervention? LOLOL

Glad that you now have your fix!!! You need some Dr. Pepper... lack of DP causes the same symptoms...

Ahhhh - I know just how you feel as I share this curious addiction. I sucked the last 1/2 swallow mixed with spit of a 3 day old bottle this morning in a desperate move to get my "fix".
