Off the Sugar Water

If any of you have stock in the Pepsi Corporation, now would probably be a good time to sell. I’m slowly weaning myself off pop (yes I said pop and not soda, or soda pop, or “coke”), and my drink of choice is Pepsi or Mountain Dew.

I’m not on a health kick or anything like that. I’m just sick of putting stuff like that high-fructose corn syrup in my body. I’m mean there really is no nutritional value to pop whatsoever. Plus, I feel funny drinking Pepsi in front of my daughter, while she drinks milk or juice. It hasn’t been a problem thus far, but I imagine it will be. Also, I’m not quitting coffee. Still riding the caffeine train in the morning.

I imagine I’m going to save some money too. I drink two or three cans of pop at work every afternoon, at $.50 a piece. That’s a buck-fifty a day and roughly $7.50 a week. Water is free.

That’s right, I’m switching straight to water. Not the bottle stuff either. Straight from the tap, the old school way. I’m just that hard-core.

So far it has been pretty easy. No shakes or convulsions or headaches. Let’s cross our fingers anyhow, just in case.
