Crazy urges

I haven't been a BIG Gulper for years, but Baby G has undoubtedly re-stoked the soda urge. Here's the kicker: CAFFEINE ISN'T ALLOWED sayeth the OB/GYN gods. Oh, if they only knew how I crave Coca-Cola. This is strange considering I've always been partial to Pepsi. And the neurosis doesn't stop there. I have to have it from the bottle — a small bottle. I swear it tastes different, people. Alas, I've only bought one six-pack and made it last for two weeks. I almost lost them, though ... there was the stove, flour sprinkling and cussing ... a funny story for another time. Needless to say, I've been craving stuff I'm not supposed to have. I bought the pickle from the Green Frog deli. Best. Pickle. Ever.

And oddly enough, I've been getting seriously cozy with smoked salmon and fresh pineapple.

I remember drinking those small bottles of Coke when I was little, because it was just the right amount. Now I swear by Pepsi. I agree that soda, be it Pepsi or Coke tastes way better from a bottle, especially a glass bottle. I'm sad they don't put Pepsi in glass bottles anymore, unless it is bottled in Mexico, and it doesn't taste the same. I remember putting all my Pepsi bottles back into their 8 pack carrier and dragging them back to the grocery for credit. I remember when I was pregnant, I was told "no more than 1 cup of coffee per day", well I don't drink coffee and there is way more caffine in coffee than in Pepsi, so I took that as I could have a little Pepsi everyday, right. So a little Coke once in a while should be fine.
