You know what I did last night? I drank a Coca Cola for the first time in more than ten months. In fact, that’s the first time I’ve had a soft drink or any carbonated beverage since early September 2010.
I had to give up drinking soft drinks and any carbonated beverages last September because I’d started taking a medication for my migraines that has a weird side effect of making several different types of food and drinks taste quite different. For example, carbonated drinks tasted extremely salty rather than however they were supposed to taste. Actually, now that I think of it, anything that was very sweet tasting ended up tasting really salty. No wonder I lost about 15 pounds in a month or so back then!
Food and drink still tastes a bit off on this medication, but it tastes a lot closer to normal than it did ten months ago! Hmmm maybe I should celebrate that fact and go and check out Shari’s berries site and treat my husband and I to some chocolate covered strawberries? Yummy. Yeah, that would be a fantastic celebration of my taste buds starting to act a little more like they should.
For now I’ll just be happy that I can occasionally enjoy a soft drink again. It’s great that I don’t drink them anymore and I didn’t miss it all that much, but I really did enjoy my Coca Cola so it’s nice that I can have one if I really want one.
When’s the last time you had a soft drink? If you drink pop regularly, can you imagine going months without drinking your regular drink?
