Have you ever had a friend that always got you into trouble? Sure what you do with that friend is fun, but you always end up worse for being with him? I have a friend like that. My wife keeps telling me I need to forget him, but we’ve been friends since childhood. He’s been there for me in the bad times. I’ve tried to break it off before, but I just end up going back to him. His name? Dr. Pepper.
I’ve a box of Dr. Pepper sitting in my office right now; next to a case of water. It’s like the proverbial “angel and demon” sitting on my shoulder. The water says, “I’m good for you. I’ll satisfy your thirst and help you lose weight.” Then Dr. Pepper says, “Water with what you’re eating? That is not a good complement. I’ve got flavor and energy and sweet, sweet goodness. Pour me over some ice and watch me fizz!”
Well, Dr. Pepper is moving out today. I’m going to have no colas this week. I need YOU to keep a tab on me. The sprite is willing, but the flesh is weak. I also need some suggestion on alternative things to drink. I need seven, up to ten new ideas. What’s your best lemonade recipe? What do you add to something to make it great? I don’t want boring, I need something with pep, see?
If it has to be water, sobe it. But I do want you to challenge me on what I’m drinking. It’s adding calories I don’t want, but more importantly don’t need.
