after we got done eating, i went and refilled the drinks, popped the lids to tell us what was regular coke and what was diet. went back, picked up the family and walked to the car. rin put the drinks in the cupholders and got into her seat.
as we drove out of the parking lot and continued on to our next destination, i asked rin what soda was mine. she handed me a cup and i took a deep pull only to be welcomed by that distinct nastiness that only diet coke can deliver. it's like licking the entire underside of a car with one continuous stroke of the tongue. i shudder just thinking about it. . .
