last memorial day was a memorable one.
i was scheduled to shoot an event around sunrise...
about two hours away from wausau.
after that, i had two or three other stories to shoot
and needless to say, it was a Very Hectic Day.
i drank many diet cokes that day.
in fact, i had been drinking many diet cokes on a regular basis.
every time i stopped at a gas station,
every time i went to the grocery store, i got a diet coke.
it wasn't a super-big deal but i could tell i depended heavily on it...
almost to the point that i decided it was a little unhealthy.
those diet cokes i drank last memorial day were some of my last.
after that, i decided to cut pop (diet cokes included) out of my life.
saying it was a rough break up would be an understatement.
but here i am -- nearly a year and only three pops later.
my first time having pop (since then) was when
this guy took me to a brewers game in milwaukee.
i had a diet coke and it was still delicious.
my second time was a diet red pop on this guy's last day of work.
(it was one of our traditions to get them together).
i heard the color comes from ladybug shells but it tastes good.
my third and final time having pop (another diet coke) in the last 365 days was when sean took me to a badgers game.
this is our view from the press box at the kohl center.
a few short weeks ago, i got a coupon in the mail for
a FREE 2-liter bottle of diet coke.
so...i got it.
it's been sitting in my fridge ever since.
i'm not really sure what to do with it.
i guess i could drink it.
and maybe tomorrow (on memorial day) i will.
