I'd like to buy the world a big smack upside the head

Rude? Prickly? I can be a bit of both. I figured it was only proper to take advantage and guest post here.

After a long day at work, sometimes you just wanna come home and have a nice, tall glass of Coca Cola. That works fine, usually. But if you have a roommate who likes to tighten the bottlecap like they're securing Fort Knox, it gets to be a little much.

The fact that I have to use a rubber jar opener just to get the cap to budge, further proving that I could do to start a weight training program, puts me in a bad mood. All I wanted was a glass of Coke! I'd gladly drink it a little flat if it meant that the damned cap would turn without me having to shred my palm in the process!

With the bottle finally opened, I retreat to my room with the entire mess, no glass needed. Somehow, the experience has already been ruined for me, carbonation or not.

I'm not usually this melodramatic. Or maybe I am.

I avoid the two liter bottles because the fizz usually goes away by the time I finish it.

Now all I can think of is the Suicidal Tendencies line, which glories a competitor: "All I wanted was a Pepsi, but she wouldn't give it to me."
