My eyes are opened!
Last week, my wife and I went and had dinner at a new place. I don't remember the exact name of it but it is in the building that the Bob's Big Boy used to be. When ever I go to a new restaurant and I order a drink, I always ask if they serve Coke of Pepsi. If they serve Coke, I will order a Diet Coke. If they serve Pepsi, I will order a lemonade or a water. Well, when I went to this new place and asked what they have, the waiter told me that it was "RC Cola". I don't have any beef with RC Cola so I ordered a Diet RC Cola. My drink comes out and it was delicious. I started thinking that I was becoming a new RC Cola fan and that I should try it more often. The drink was delicious! Towards the end of the meal and 5 refills later, I started looking around in the restaurant. To me surprise, I see a PEPSI logo on the soda fountain. If anyone knows me, they know how close-minded I am when it comes to beverages. I start freaking out when I realize what happened. I don't know if anyone was conspiring against me but I felt like the "wool had been pulled over my eyes." I didn't know what to do. I had been talking trash on Pepsi for the last 8 years of my life and then, all-of-a-sudden, I realize that Diet Pepsi is actually quite delicious. I still don't care for the taste of regular Pepsi, but Diet Pepsi is very good.
