I’ve Gone Mad!

To say I’m having a “bad day” at work this week is expecting the six little letters to do a lot of heavy lifting. And I’m about to do something crazy!

I’m going to drink a Diet Coke.

I know! Right?

But I’m going to.

Right now.

    Oh, hell yeah! Sometimes a cold Diet Coke makes the day that much better…especially if it's been a while since you've last had one. No need to feel guilty. You could be indulging in a lot worse 🙂

  • Melissa 'Melicious' Joulwan says:

    What I wanted was a bowl of buttered popcorn and a bag of peanut butter M&Ms, so yeah, even thought Diet Coke is a nutritional wasteland, I feel like it was a wise-ish choice, given my current state of mind.

    Now I'm about to go totally wackadoodle and eat my back-up snack: cucumbers, olives, and half a can of smoked kipper snacks. I'm a real Hell-raiser over here.

  • Victoria says:

    OK, how was the diet coke? Are you bouncing off the ceiling?

  • Melissa 'Melicious' Joulwan says:

    It was cold and refreshing and, frankly, I wanted another one. But I didn't have it.

    I'm not bouncing, but that's mostly because I'm crushed under the weight of my workload 😉

    One more hour and I should be good to go for the weekend.

    I threw caution to the wind and had a Coke Zero at the movies. Couldn't finish it. Grossed me out! But it was cold and I wanted another one. Conspiracy? I think so!

  • Anniebug, bugger or BUG. says:

    A diet coke…could of been half a pie at Home Slice. I wanted that last Wednesday when I felt like throwing my computer out the window. A hellish day at work will do that to ya.

    (I didn't do either.)
