The Lament of a Loyal Coca-Cola Man

I have always been a Coke drinker. If a restaurant has only pepsi products, bring out the iced tea or water. However, I find a little variety to be a nice thing.

So for years, I have gone to "In-N-Out Burgers", (For those of you not in the extreme southwestern USA-The best burgers around, and has the consistently best fountain mix of Coca-Cola.) To get Coke, with just a little bit of their lemonade mixed in.

Way back when Cherry Coke was introduce, I had hoped Lemon Coke would follow close behind. After many years had passed... Along comes Diet Coke with Lemon, (all I can taste is the diet sweetener.) Could it be? Should I get my hopes up again? NO!!

Then Pepsi came out with pepsi Twist, I was curious, and Vanilla Coke was just not what I was looking for... So I tried it. I hate to admit it, but I liked it, not as well as my home-made In-N-Out mix, but it was good. (I despised the fact that Coca-Cola had driven me to a pepsi product and lamented that I had given-in to my curiosity.)Surely, I thought Coke would respond, after all there was by this time Vanilla Pepsi. Sadly NO. Diet Coke with Lime was the weak reply.

Now finally Coke has put citrus into Coca-Cola, but it is the lime that wins out again. It is good, and like Cherry Coke & Vanilla Coke, I am sure I will enjoy it every once in a while. It is however, not Lemon Coke, which mixed properly is almost better than the original. (I said almost!!!)

Nothing beats an Ice-Cold Coca-Cola in an 8 oz. glass Bottle. But, when I crave that little bit of lemon, and can't get to an In-N-Out... I put on the hat and dark glasses, breakout the trenchcoat and head to a store where nobody knows me... and I buy a p..ppp.ppp.pppp.....pepsi product that Coca-Cola just refuses to provide.

Please, if you just happen to be in the upper management of Coca-Cola, end my suffering. Introduce Lemon Coke, that my lips may never again be sullied by the evil cola again.(Yes. Yes. I know. The odds were astronomical. But, if you tell 2 friends, and they tell 2 friends, and so on and so on... Perhaps on of those people might be.)

I am... (Still, to be continued)

I am in fact still alive, and I have not abandoned this blog yet.

I have every intention of puting something on this site most weekdays, or at least once a week.

As you can clearly see, intentions alone get nothing done!!!

Happy Friday!!!

As you can probably tell by now,(with this eclectic group of posts), I have not really formed much of a plan as to what sort of blog this will be. It will most likely be a mish-mosh of the random thoughts that float around in my head, or at least the ones that leak out. So sit back, relax, kick off your shoes & try not to be to annoyed or afraid.

Yes, I realize of course that I may very well be the only one reading this, but, if you are then I was wrong again.

That said, it is Friday and I hope you are having a good one.
