Anyhow. Today, I found this:
The had cordoned off my machine!!
Please pardon the second photograph, hard to judge the light from the reflective cones.
You don't want to get between me and my PepsiOne. And check out that first picture, again. See what they're advertising on the bus on the right side? Yes, that's right, Pepsi!
I've been more or less addicted to Pepsi products since I was about 12. Before diagnosis, it was regular pepsi. Since diagnosis, Diet Pepsi, although I signficantly prefer PepsiOne. It tastes much closer to the taste my system remembers from the High Fructose Corn Syrup sweetened stuff.
I leaned carefully over the protective tape and put my coins in the machine. I sweet talked one of the workers into handing the can to me. I smiled and walked away.
Tomorrow is another day. And it had better be better.
