Nectar of the Gods

Ever have one of those days?  A day when everything goes wrong?  When everyone hates you?  A day that seems to be neverending?

It's finally over.  You've made it home, to your refuge.  Your haven.  Your day has been horrible, but you've done your time and now you get to relax.

You go to the fridge and see that lovely bottle.  Just holding it in your hand eases the tension.  It's cool; it will bring relief.

You twist the top and hear that sound.  The sound that promises to quench a thirst deeper than physical.  That promises to drown the day's sorrows.

So you take a swallow.  That first precious swallow that tastes better than anything humans have a right to enjoy.  That swig that burns all the way down.  Followed by a sigh of relief.  You have just partaken of the nectar of the gods.

Diet Coke.

And life is good again.  You're going to make it through the night.  All is right with the world.

*ahhh*

I thought you were describing Diet Dr. Pepper - "the joy of every boy and girl - the most original soft drink ever in the whole wide world"! LOL

Dr. P is my fav, but I drink more Pellegrino (carbonated water) - it has a lot less sodium - and still gives you that carbonated burn!!!

I guess I am out there, I though you were drinking wine. Does that make me a wino?

Just Another Person said...

well, I thought you were talking about beer. I miss drinking beer. By the way thanks for the comment on my blog. I am doing fine still. Still keeping myself out of depression. Hope tomorrow will be a better day for you!

Diet Coke is good. But Diet Dr Pepper with Lo Cal Cherry from Sonic(in Rt 44 Size of course) is truly a holistic experience

MaggieJo said...

I blame my Dr Pepper binge on you :)

Shannon said...

Oh I am so with you! I'm so bad that my friends have this ongoing joke about me and diet coke! It worse for me than cigarettes, and if they ever find out it causes a dreaded disease, I am done for!

I was going to drink a glass of water with lunch, but after reading this had to pop a coke zero. Ahhh

wow - you had me wanting (at first some wine) - then a bottle of beer... then you TRICKED me with your "Sixth Sense" twist at the end... Diet Coke! lol - The way M. Night Shyamalan's career has been stinking lately - I think he could gain some tips from you!! :) :) I truly am sorry it was a rough day for you - but you made me smile with this post :)

You made me giggle... here it would be Diet Dr. Pepper... which here in the south, the stock at McDonald's and Chick-fil-a... this makes me very happy!

Kazzy said...

I haven't had soda for 4 months, and thinking of drinking it kind of scares me now. Plus, "burning all the way down" doesn't sound too appetizing to me. LOL

Day said...

I kinda feel that way about orange juice. Or chocolate soymilk. But not at the same time. :)

Lisa said...
