Dr. Pepper from a soda fountain makes me hiccup.
(Sure, it's a silly confession but I figured after the heavy stuff last week, we could all use a little levity.)
It's only the Dr. Pepper...never the Diet Coke or Sprite. And even though I know it's coming, the hiccups still take me by surprise.
I'm a snob when it comes to soda. I'd rather have plain water instead of Coke. Yuck.
And in Texas, every drink is a Coke. Everything! At my very first job, I worked in food service and would frequently double-fill drink orders because the customers asked for three Cokes, a Diet Coke, and two Sprites. So I gave them their six drinks and they get all confused. "But I just wanted the Diet Coke and Sprites!" Then why did you order three Cokes? ARRRGGGGG!!! And I wonder why I never got Employee of the Month.
I like calling it soda as opposed to pop. But nearly every time I say "soda," I think of that one Mythbusters where they're playing with Diet Coke and Mentos and Adam says "Soda!" in this funny way. That makes me smile. "Soda!"
My current aluminum can of happiness is Diet Pepsi Vanilla.
Having a favorite soda and loudly proclaiming it is almost like talking politics. Everyone feels strongly and cannot be swayed from their opinion. And anyone who doesn't share that same opinion is a tasteless fool.
What is your favorite soda?
