This aught to counteract yesterday's brag-fest:
The grocery store had a big sale on pop last week. It was almost half price, so I stocked up. I bought three 12 packs of lime diet coke, which I promptly brought inside and put away. Then, a few days later I was back at the grocery store and I decided to buy three more. I'm almost certainly going to drink it, so I might as well take advantage of the good prices, right?
When I got home, I had a lot to unload and a lot on my mind. It was warm out last week (above freezing) so I left the pop in the back of my car. I promptly forgot about it. The temperature dropped to well below freezing, and I'm sure you can imagine what happened. Yesterday I discovered that 36 cans of diet coke had exploded in my car, and since I drive a Matrix (basically a mini station wagon, with no enclosed trunk), the mess wasn't contained. Frozen pop is everywhere, from front to back and even on the ceiling.
I am an idiot.
