there are oh-so-many things that i get excited about. i was thinking about one of them - beauty, something i want to talk more about - but then i got distracted by some of the other things.
like diet coke.
i mostly don't drink diet coke. i had to give it up when i decided to cut out artificial sweeteners. (that was a sad, sad day.) every once in a while, i treat myself to a can of it but unfortunately, now that i don't drink it, it's hard to drink it at all because the caffeine in it bothers me.
anyway, i was thinking about how much i love the treat of a can of (flat, cold) diet coke (with lime) and it made me think about the times you're in a restaurant and ask for a diet coke and they say, "is diet pepsi ok?" my response is a very sad face and a politely horrified "no, i'll just have water". what i am really thinking is, "of course it's not ok! they taste nothing alike! why would you ask such a foolish question?!"
speaking of diet coke, am i the only one who likes my diet coke flat and cold? i like to open the can and then leave it in the refrigerator and drink it hours later or even the next day, when the bubbles are all gone. it's the best way to drink it.
i love dill pickles. not sweet pickles. sweet pickles could be banned from the world and i would not be sorry. there is nothing that aggravates me more than when i see pickles and get excited and pile them on my sandwich or burger and then take a bite and they are sweet pickles and it is horrible.
dill pickles are excellent with peanut butter. really, peanut butter goes with everything, but it is especially good with dill pickles. if you are looking for a breakfast idea, might i suggest a piece of toast with peanut butter and dill pickle slices? you will thank me; i am sure of it.
i would also like to note that sandwich makers never put enough pickles on their sandwiches. pickles need to be piled on, like a little mountain. clearly i should run a sandwich shop. i could call it "the picklewich" and people like me would finally get enough pickles on their sandwiches.
(and no, this picture is totally not related. though now that i look at it after having written my post, i suppose it could resemble the bubbles in a diet coke or the green of a good dill pickle. clearly i am a genius picture picker.)
now i'm curious, what do you get excited about?
