earlier today, after evie and i had visited the target (where dreams come true!) and were driving home through the rain, i thought to myself, "it is time for a diet coke".
usually, i feel this way every day around 4pm. i need a diet coke. i need the fizz and the pop and lets just be honest, i need the caffeine!
i called my husband to commiserate. "evie and i are on our way home from target and the security guard at the door thought i was trying to steal a gallon of milk (?!?!) and i bought evie a halloween bag and IT IS TIME FOR A DIET COKE!!"
"it is time for a diet coke" he agreed.
and then the thought came to me "are we addicted?!"
i mean, if the mere thought of 4:00 in the afternoon without a diet coke sends terror to my soul, do i need rehab?! can i join a support group?!
(these are not rhetorical questions. please and thank you.)
i didn't get the diet coke, just so you know.
ps. it should also be mentioned that i went off the caffeine during pregnancy and survived without it just fine, so there's that.
