I really do wonder if my brain checked out and forgot to come back at some point. It amazes me that there are things that just slip by me. Of course over the next few days there will probably be a lot of that.
I have taken it upon myself to quit three things that are very bad for me. Now one I hate to admit too because so many people go all commando when you mention it. I am, wait that isn't right, was as of two hours ago a smoker. I have attempted this in the past but this time I am quitting for the right reason. First my doctor told me I had to and second I have every intention of sticking around for as long as I can and hopefully lead a reasonably healthy life.
Now as hard as this may be to stick to it doesn't even begin to compare with the other thing or things I'm giving up. I have been, since a very early age a Coke lover. Now I capitalized the C in that name so people wouldn't get confused by what I am saying. I certainly don't want anyone to think I'm talking about that little white powder that so many are enamored of. I am referring to that luscious, wonderful, refreshing drink that so many of us know and love. Sorry Coca-Cola but I will be only drinking one bottle of your product a day for the next coupe weeks and after that none, nil, zero, not one little bottle of your magnificent refreshing beverage. I could go on like this for a while but I think you get my point. So I'm sorry to give you such short notice of our unfortunate parting. I shall of course miss you, at least for a while, but I think it is best if not for you then for me. I must move on and sadly leave you behind. I truly wish you all the best in your new and ongoing relationships with your other customers.
Now the reason why I will be allowed one a day for the next couple of weeks is that this drink has been my coffee as it were and getting a certain type of headache from the withdrawal while trying to quit smoking might not be in my best interest. I will go along with my doctor on this one.
As for my family and friends, I apologize in advance for the raging bitch that I might become over the next few weeks. If it gets too bad remember murder is not an option for you and you'll just have to live with it or take a very long vacation. I don't mind you leaving me because I'm sure you'll be getting on my last nerve anyway. I love you though and after this passes I'm sure I'll owe each of you big time.
Now if you are wondering what the third item is, well Cola has both of those things in it. Caffeine and sugar, high fructose corn syrup. Goodbye to both.
So wish me luck and hope that I maintain some semblance of rational thought and my family survives the experience.
