H o T Bottles

HEADS :Bottle

YES...we 'CAN' all just get along!" ... except the theme was Bottle.
I saw a similar picture somewhere ...this one is my own.
I found the Pepsi bottle dirty somewhere ? and I think we bought the old fashioned Coke bottle.
I don't really collect bottles but I liked these.

I have never been party to the Coke vs Pepsi wars.

I can take or leave either. I gave both up when I was pregnant with both Charlotte & my twins.

I was determined I wouldn't give my twins any 'Cola' - I didn't factor on them getting a taste from their brother or some other. They love it *sigh*. It will be a very rare treat.

I rarely drink the stuff but coincidentally today I was hot and thirsty for something COLD icy & sweet after spending a few hours in the park with some friends and walking about . It was hot out.

'It' ~Coke~ was cold and inviting , mocking me from my Dh's work fridge- so I gave in. It was good but it did make me burp that horrible post lunch burp... through my nose. Then I came home and saw the Heads or Tails meme.

I thought about those two bottles side by side in my almost empty wine rack *sigh* ... haven't had time to refill it.

They sat along side some empty Corona bottles I want to make into salt n pepper shakers ...sometime in next dozen years.

So I grabbed a Pepsi can from a hidden stash of Pepsi (Hidden from the Teen) just to play along. The Pepsi was hot ...did I drink it . I think not ...one can of that sweet stuff a day is enough for my bottom line.
I refilled the can, put in the fridge to cool and I gave to my teenager tonight ... I bet he was wondering why and yes if I let him drink it we 'can' just get along fine.

Never miss a post

We don't really have soft drinks in the house much so consequently, my kids love them like nothing else. I can mostly leave them!

I used to be addicted, then I stopped drinking soda when I was pregnant. I now drink soda only when I'm out and I eat out less than once a month. Luckily my kid hates carbonation so I don't have to worry about her becoming a soda junkie.

I used to be more of a Pepsi person than a Coke person. Coke seemed too syrupy for me. Now I mostly drink water and that's so much better for me.

My kids weren't allowed much pop when they were growing up. They got Kool-Aid.. which probably had more sugar.

I think it must be thirty years since I've drunk either. And I don't miss them.

Wow. Do they bottle in bottles anymore? I used to love an ice cold coke from a glass bottle and when I was in HS we would literally collect some bottles when we needed gas money to goof around with.

I always loved the old RC Cola best...right behind Sarsparilla, which is my staple fluid intake ;)

I love any diet soda. I can never tell the difference between all the brands.

I love coke/pepsi. Just trying to cut off a little for health sake. I guess it's no harm just to take it occasionally. ^^ C'mon, you gotta admit it's really tempting.
