On a lark I bought a “Monster Energy Drink” last night. It’s the low-carb kind, and I figured I’d try it at breakfast instead of my usual fat-burner pill.
(Note: the comments form is not a place for you to shower me with criticism for eating this way, so don’t start.)
Like the other energy drinks I’ve had in the past, this one tastes like cold, carbonated soup made with a variety of !food. No surprise. Anyway, I sat down at my PC and found that my glass from last night was occupying the space I wanted to put the can of energy drink into. This problem has two solutions:
1) Carry the glass to the kitchen.
2) pour the energy drink into the glass, and then throw the can away.
I’m a geek, and a lazy one at that. I took option two, because it conserves energy.
I shouldn’t have done that.
In fact, the first words out of my mouth after pouring the drink into the glass were “I shouldn’t have done that,” punctuated with laughter.
You see, “Monster Energy Drink” looks EXACTLY like urine. Specifically, it looks like the deep, yellow urine you get when you’ve been overeating rich foods, and have not been drinking enough water. You holistic urinalysis types know what I mean — it’s the pee that says “you’re not eating right,” and suggests you pound liquids for half a day or more.
I’m going upstairs to show Sandra my glass of pee. If we’re lucky, she’ll blog about it too.
