I don't like soda. I really can't stand carbonated beverages in general. Usually, after the first sip, I immediately have the hiccups and then proceed to feel ill and remorseful of my beverage choice. The only exception... champagne. Yum.
I don't know what happened, but about six days ago I had an insane craving for Coca Cola and while I was only able to get a hold of a Diet Pepsi in that moment, the craving (as usual) never went away. I shared this desperate need for carbonated poison with Hans on Monday and he faithfully brought home a very adorable six pack of 8oz. cans so that I might feel better about giving in to the craving by having less. Seriously, have you seen those little cans? Cute little bastards. Anyway, foolishly and with great satisfaction I have consumed my one 8oz. can every day since until today when I... didn't. Round about 2pm a massive headache set in and drove me to near insanity as the hours drug on without any relief. Eventually I realized it was the caffeine (I only drink decaf coffee) and now I'm in a serious pickle since I'm obviously not going to continue with a Coke habit (of any kind), but alternately- I have to detox. One more can before I do, waste not want not. Right?
While I was tweaking on a lack of caffeine today... I was forgetting something else. It wasn't until six o'clock when I arrived home and removed my sweater to begin preparations for **dinner that I realized I had forgotten to use deodorant this morning. Dang. Sorry to anyone I may have bothered today by possibly smelling like a high school locker room or just a really nasty hamper. I'll try to do better tomorrow.
**By "begin preparations for dinner" I mean, waiting for Hans to bring home tater tots... something else I've had a craving for. And DOUBLE NO, not pregnant.
