Day 3 - Just Give Me a Fountain Drink!!

January 03, 2014

I can't believe it's only Day 3 of the spending freeze.  I thought for sure it was at least 4...

Josh was reading tonight about how McDonalds soft drinks truly do taste better than other soft drinks and why.  I saw a picture of the McDonalds cup and thought "Yes, a diet coke from McDonalds sounds just dandy right now."

I've been sick with the flu since 2014 started.  Fever, chills, cough, sore throat, headache, achy, nauseous...  So, to actually have some food or drink sound good to me is nice.

Bless his heart, this man has put up with so much from me and Catherine in the last 3 days and still offered to actually go get me a Diet Coke from McDonalds at 9:30 at night.  Oh, and in sub zero temps on snow covered roads.  (Wow, what a guy!)

When suddenly I remembered, "WE'RE ON A SPENDING FREEZE!!!!!"

Don't mind me.  I'll just go back to my alternating sweats and chills and hope this ends soon!!!

  1. Correct me if I'm wrong, but "better" pop/soft drinks from fountains correlate with how often the tubes/pipes are cleaned.

    I have some friends in Long Beach that will drive across town to a specific McDonald's (note that it IS a McD's, but not just any ol' McD's in Long Beach) when they want/need a Diet Coke.

    On a side note, I was kinda bummed when the $1 drinks stopped happening at the RL McD's. It was a fun treat every once in a while.

    Get better soon!
