I was so excited about Lent being over for extremely selfish reasons – I can have Pepsi again!!!!!!!
Like many people, I ‘gave up’ some things that were ‘bad’ for me for 40 days, like cussing (#EPICFAIL) and carbonated drinks. I know, you want to see what my temperature was when I made this decision. But it was necessary. I have a rather bad potty mouth. Like cussin’ for the sake of cussin’. To be honest, Redman said it best – I talk so much $#!+ my teeth should rot – hahahahahahahha. But I digress. So my goal was to have a better handle on my language for 40 days in an effort to be less sailor-ish and more lady like, mouth wise. Let’s just say I failed on day one. But I did keep trying to do right, and now I do curse less than I did before.
But then there was the carbonated drinks.
I do not know why I gave up ALL carbonated drinks. I could have just given up Pepsi. But nooooooooooo, I just had to be an over achiever.
And I was.
I didn’t have carbonated drinks for 40 days.
And 40 nights.
I thought I was going to die. Literally. It was the hardest thing for me.
I LOVE Pepsi. Especially Pepsi Throwback. Real sugar…..<insert Homer Simpson donut gurgle here>
But yesterday, it didn’t matter. I had Pepsi.
Oh. Em. Gee.
It was so gross. Like I could not even believe how gross it was. I was actually gagging.
I was so sad. I love Pepsi…how could this be?
But I am a trooper. I will keep drinking it until it tastes right.
But until then, I will keep on gagging…..all in the name of love. 🙂
