My Drug Of Choice

I won't complain about another long night.  I promise not to whine about Molly's croup that had us up all night or Adrienne's bouts of intermittent crying that started just as Mols drifted off around 4.  Because that would be annoying.  Instead, let me just note again how much I love the caffeine crutch that is Diet Coke.  I think my adoration can best be expressed in an ode.

An Ode to Diet Coke
I don't gamble, or care to smoke,
My vice of choice is Diet Coke!

The silvery can fits perfectly in my hand.
The bubbles go down with a fizzy sound.
Popping the top is music to my ears
It's totally worth the dentist's sneers.

Suddenly I have energy!
I'm fun and silly and when M asks me
to be a pony, or conductor, or dinosaur
I jump at the chance!  Meet me on the floor
for gator wrestling or a tickle fest
Diet Cokes makes me my very best!

Whether you call it soda, coke, or pop
I love it with a hot pretzel when I shop.
It carried me through college and then at worky,
I got a reputation for being caffeinated and perky.

How does one get through the day
Without a Diet Coke during work and play?
Especially when sick kids are up all night
I live for a Diet Coke as soon as it's daylight.

The End.

Naturally, I had to find a Coke commercial for today and I came across this one I vaguely remember seeing on air a while back. I'm guessing viewer response wasn't great because it was short lived and it's flippin' weird.  But we embrace weird commercials around here so here it goes.  But first- are those tongues made out of silly putty?  I think so.  Aren't they gross?

I've never seen this commercial. But my brain loves pop too. I've changed loyalties over the years, but it really boils down to my head! : ) - Carla

my very favorite line is

"It carried me through college and then at worky,
I got a reputation for being caffeinated and perky."

You are a poet & I didn't even know it! :) I am totally with you on the DC thing. I don't drink coffee, occasionally tea, but first thing in the morning...ahhh, the pop o' the can! Pure heaven.....
Cheers!
