OK, I will come clean. I am a Coke addict!

I normally have a good supply tucked away under my desk, so I can help myself during the day, but it has all gone wrong.

Yesterday morning I ran out. No worries, I can get some more at lunchtime. That did not work out, though, as I spent most of my time checking out birthday presents for my youngest son (9 soon!). This meant that I had to get through the afternoon without any at all.

Not to worry, I can pick up some on the way to work in the morning. No, I left home without any cash and did not have time to go to the cash machine AND buy more Coke. Argh! I arrived at work, wondering how I was going to get through the morning. Hm, chocolate might help. I dug under my desk in search of the bars of brown heaven that I knew where there. Found them. Then, as I pulled my hand back my fingers brushed something cool and metallic. What was that? Could it be? YES it was! A can of cool, delicious, wonderful Coca Cola!

Where had it come from?

How long had it been there?

I do not know the answers to these questions.

Perhaps my Guardian Angel put it there?

Who knows?

Who cares?

Hi, my name is Logziella and I am a recovering Pepsi addict. I have been clean now for about 6 months and I can completely control my addiction. I know when to stop and when I have had too much....really I do...I DO...

I think we may all be closet Coke or Pepsi-a-holics...

I actually crave it more than I crave chocolate and have even called the husband on his way home from a 12 hour shift to beg him to pick me up some...it's a sickness.

It's more coke/pepsi slurpees for me. I will drink them in the middle of January.
I am constantly bugging people in the office to pick one up for me. So far I've only convinced one person to do it, and he doesn't work with me anymore.
Coincidence?

Logzie - well done!

Ali - you are right, but how to beat it? Maybe Logzie can help us?

Princess - Coke slurpees? What are these? Made with crushed ice or something?

I have an emergency coke in my desk drawer right now. I make sure there is always one there! Coke slurpees...mmmmmm...one of my favourites too. I didn't know how to describe one so I googled it. This is what came up! A sweet-tasting frozen drink made by continually stirring a flavored syrop at a below-freezing temperature to create a frozen, yet fluid drink.

Thanks Krista- I had no idea how to define that.

Glad to see it's Coke and not Pepsi!

I drink Pepsi never Coke. In fact I have not had anything produced by Coca-Cola pass my lips for over 5 years now (that includes Sprite, Dr Pepper, etc etc.) There is a reason for it, maybe I will tell the story sometime.

Diet Coke... formerly a Pepsi addict. Should we get sponsors?

You sound like my sister - except for her it's Diet Pepsi. I tell her she should start an IV drip with the stuff. Maybe you should consider that?
