DON'T BE DISAPPOINTED IN ME..BUT I DRANK

I am so upset with myself..
I let family problems and the stress of being a diabetic become an obstacle I couldn't over come..I was so proud of myself for not giving in and allowing problems push me into something I had been avoiding for so long..I can't tell you how hard it has been, especially in a town like West where it's almost on every corner...Every time I would go to the stores there would be either advertisement or the product themselves...every where..I would wake up in middle of night wanting a drink and couldn't go back to sleep thinking about it..My birthday came and went and I just wanted to drink all that much more..till finally I was so beat down I couldn't stop myself..and just said fuck it...I got in the truck..drove down to Community Grocery...didn't make a stop and say howdy to anyone, just went and got it and took it to the register and bought it..I took it out to the truck and in shame I opened the bottle and drank it ..right then and there...damn...I'm so sorry...but if I had to do it all over again I would...that was the best fucking Dr. Pepper I have ever had..

Diet Dr. Pepper is NOT like original Dr. Pepper. You deserve The Real Thing every so often. Glad though that you offered up a confession.

R. Rodgers said...

As usual you had me going there.

Take care.

I just asked Bruce if a diabetic wanted to commit suicde how would she do it? He said she? I said yes, she. He said I dunno, how? She would go into the cupboard and get that can of chocolate frosting out and eat it. Yes, it's in the cupboard and I can't stop thinking about it....I just don't want to die right now in this moment, maybe tomorrow. :)

junebugg: ohhh honey buns...get thee behind my fat thighs satan..

Allan said...

Nice 'O.Henry-esque' ending. I wasn't really that worried though- even it was for real, I know you could get back on top and stomp the demons down.
My late, maternal Grandma was a diabetic recovered alkie, and she only got drunk once in the 24 years that I knew her. We had a good time that night, then she went right back on the wagon. No shame, no blame, no guilt.

maybe you can hire a new york lawyer and sue dr pepper. if some idiot can sue for spilling hot coffee, you should be able to sue for the lure of dr pepper.

it was real hard not to ascribe an ethnicity to the lawyer.

apositivepessimist said...

heh heh...bloody thing you are, my eyebrows shot up so far when I started reading that. I was thinking damn what ELSE has happened to bring the booze on. heh.

thumb up yer bum.

Josh said...

Just when I was getting ready to be all shocked and offer encouragement and shit... it was the old "soda switcheroo" at the end. Bad Jackie Sue!

And to add to an earlier commenter, I think a sugary relapse is still better than a sugary prolapse.

Cheers!

Beansidhe said...

Speaking of sugary prolapses *twitch* Apparently that's how you fix a sheeps prolapsed uterus - with sugar. My in-laws are sheep farmers (form an orderly queue for the sheep-shagging jokes please) and frequently after birthing lambs, sheep have prolapsed uterus (what's the plural of uterus by the way?....uterii??) and you sprinkle sugar on the offending organ which shrinks it somewhat and then it can easily (?) be pushed back inside the ewe. Just thought that might be a helpful snippet of info. You've no idea how hard it is to get sheeps uterus's into conversation these days - thanks for the lead in Josh ;)

Beansidhe said...

P.S. I have some snatch for you over on my blog.

Ol' Lady said...

thanks for the early morning heart stopper!

yellowdog granny said...

allan:ahh, no worries about me drinking again..i like being sober too much..
rubyrocks: hm...suing dr.pepper.? nah...no way...
apos: haha...thumb up your bum too.
josh: sugary prolapse?..er...uh...ah..ohhhhhhhhkay..
suz: leave it to you to know about a sugary prolapse..and josh...how the hell did you learn about sugary prolapse..i have a whole new admiration for the both of you...prolapse indeed..
yeah...snatch...
old lady: sorry...like nit wit says..'I'm evil'...

See? You have earned my praise and worship. All hail to JS!

dom said...

I'll stick to beer , as for all your readers, I thought for one horrid moment you'd opened a bottled JD rye, Glad you chose the Bigger evil!

It gets on my goat when I see FAT people order a 'diet' drink with their supersized meal !

I was glad you could be bothered to make your way to my site and comment . I'm so honoured, being as you're so busy reading political shite.

JBlue said...

You had me going there. I was really getting bummed....

yellowdog granny said...

byg:ohh, i love being worshiped...
dom: thanks...yeah, beer would be ok, but trust me..dr.pepper doesnt want to make you commit suicide the next morning..

jublue:yeah, I know..im a naughty girl..
