Why I drink Diet Pepsi

I drink soda.  (or pop if you are from a different area of the nation.  For me, Pop = Shasta.  If I wanna Pop, I wanna Shasta.)

I understand it is not good for me.  But I am a selfless person.  I drink Diet Pepsi to help the environment.

When I drink water, I know it is healthier for me, but I also know there are droughts around the country and I figure if I drink more soda, there will be more water for others.

It’s my own meager attempt to be an environmentalist.  Because recycling is kind of a pain.

    This conversation happens about every two weeks or so:
    Noele: You really need to stop drinking so much diet soda.
    Me: Yes I do. But not today.

    I like your thinking. But what’s Shasta? Sounds like a funky dance. Let’s Shasta!

  3. Ugh, Diet?!? Really? Go full throttle and avoid the neurotoxin! You’re brain and nervous system will thank-you along with the environment 🙂

  4. I too am a Diet Pepsi Afficia.. consu… drinker. Sorry Diet Coke. But the past year, I have gotten into Propel water. It’s flavored water. The strange thing I just learned, it has more sodium than Diet Pepsi. What’s up with that? Grrrr healthy.
