Mellow Yellow

There's a restaurant close to us that Owen and I have grown fond of. We end up there nearly every weekend. It's a good thing that the food they serve is relatively healthy because there's one thing that's decidedly not. See, they have one of those new Coke machines that stocks every single kind of soda they've ever made while allowing you to flavor your brand of choice however you like. Maybe this is old news but it's pretty darn awesome.

I'm not a soda fan. I drink coffee, water, Gatorade and beer. Rarely do I buy soda. But I make an exception for myself - and, sometimes, Owen - at this place because it's so damn fun.

All that said, I think if you view soda as anything other than liquid candy you're delusional, which is why I could understand New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg's attempt to rid the city of super-sized soda. Of course it failed - everyone had to know it would, and it probably should have failed (I mean, come on, you can't legislate people into being healthier) - but I admired the sentiment behind it.

After all, I wouldn't want to be deprived of my lime-flavored Mellow Yellow.

We're going to a school fundraiser Thursday at a place that has one of those Coke machines. Cherry Vanilla Coke Zero here I come!
