you'll miss me when i am dead

i may or may not have a diet coke addiction (may). why is it so addictive you ask? lets consult the ingredient listed below:
  • carbonated water
  • caramel color
  • aspartame
  • phosphoric acid
  • potassium benzoate (to protect taste)
  • natural flavors
  • citric acid
  • caffeine

that can't be good, right? but whatevs. i wised up and decided to embrace the addiction and die of whatever those ingredients in large amounts will do to you over a long period of time.


the good news is this may not be what kills me after all. in fact, my addiction might end up saving my life, and here's how. diet coke plus, with vitamins and minerals. niacin, b6 and b12?! goodbye anemia, hello DNA repair! beck and i were so excited about the prospect of not dying from the amount of diet coke we drink, that we decided to document our first sips of this nector of health. i thought those added minerals tasted like carmelized nails. so i decided i was cool with dying. beck thought it was okay, but she thinks those added vitamins (and minerals) actually mask her favorite thing about the diet coke (besides the caffeine, obviously)--aspertame. addictions shouldnt be healthy. it was wrong to try.

With all the Coke inventions, I wouldn't worry too much. Diet Coke Milk is probably next in line and you can try that out when it comes. Imagine: Diet Coke Milk on cereal.

what's wrong with your dna in the first place? i think you probably have lovely dna

natali said...

its ok. my cells replicate at abnormal rates but i guess they cant get it right all the time.

brian said...

natali said...
