The Daily Post: What I can not say no to

Today’s Daily Post topic: What can you not say no to?

I have been alive for 14,610 days. I have lived life to what I feel like is to the fullest.

And not to take any moral high road– I am far from a saint– I have never smoked, tried illegal drugs and I do not drink to excess.

But there is one vice that I can not do with out.


I swear my mom put it in my baby bottle when I was an infant.

All kidding aside, I can remember vividly when I was 6 or 7 and on Friday nights my mom would pour my brother, Ryan and I, a glass of Coke. She always used these little green-tinted glasses with little flowers on them.

I can remember craving that little glass of sugary goodness all week. I actually looked forward to that Friday night treat with mouth watering anticipation!

Now, here we are 33 years later and not a day goes by that I don’t have an insatiable craving for that carmel-colored elixir.

I have tried Coke Zero (not bad), Diet Coke (gross), generic cola, micro-brewed colas, natural cola, and so on and so on…

But nothing hits the spot like a coke.

As Eddie Murphy says:

Now, have a Coke and a smile and shut the F-dash-dash-dash-dash-word UP! and I am not meaning F-U-D-G-E.

Yep, I said it, better tell my mom so I can wash my mouth out with Lifeboy soap. But hey, I will just blame it on Schwartz!
