Funny story...I stopped drinking sodas in 1995 (ish?) after I developed a slight case of the stress stomach (or in my family "Davenport stomach"...long story). After the first couple of weeks of quitting (nothing but one long, giant headache), I was fine. Every once and awhile, I might get to craving one, but then I remembered how my stomach felt...and easily passed on them.
Well, the truth is that I still drink blended coke floats. These are coke floats that have been put into a blender...I don't want to eat mine; I want to drink mine through a straw!! :)
A few weeks ago my boss swings into Sonic for a pitstop (a banana split!), and I ordered a blended coke float. It was a HOT, HOT, HOT day so it hit the spot! Yummm!!! :) Hot day...stressful day...cold, yummy treat. :) So the absolute truth is that they have been really hitting the spot every other day or so....Whoops! :)
This one is CLEARLY not blended. :)
My friend just completely dogged me out about it in FB...go Karen! :) That will teach me to post truth. :)
This got me to thinking....
You can give up something that is bad for you, but once you get a taste of it (for whatever reason)...it can suck you back in like a Hoover vaccum cleaner. Yeah...somewhere in there I stopped talking about ice cream and coke. ;)
We have to be careful...there are a lot of bad things out there that do not always have our best interests at heart. Sometimes it gets tricky to know the difference.
I'm glad today that I have sweet friends who rib me about my vices...and make me gut check myself that I am not letting it get out of hand. Since I am barely getting time to eat a meal...I guess a blended coke float every other day or so isn't that bad. :)
I'm glad today too that I am cognizant that bad people, bad thoughts, bad memories, bad food...any or all are just around the corner ready to lure me back in. I will not be fooled....okay unless it or they are covered in ice cream...because ice cream can cancel the bad out of anything. :) :)
