In 1994, I HAPPILY (I was stupid...obviously) dropped out of college and moved to Las Vegas to live with Cathe, Lindsay and Stephen. Cathe was in the middle of divorcing what's his name and I need a life change. Those 9 months that I lived with Cathe is in the top 3 of my most favorite times of my life. For the first time I really got to know Cathe and it's been the best thing that could have ever happened to me. I love my sister! Anyway, during that time we would spend our evening drinking Diet Coke (yup I use to drink Diet coke, I switched to Dr. Pepper, had a short affair with Mountain Dew but was later converted to Diet Pepsi), playing cards and eating Red Vines.
Cathe introduced me to Red Vines during this time, I remember the first time she offered them to me and I was all thinking "Umm..I don't really like licorice but since this is a bonding moment I'm gonna eat some" but I found out that it wasn't licorice I didn't like, it was Twizlers I didn't like! It was great news. So anyway, every time I see Red Vines or eat Red Vines, it remind me of me, Cathe, cards and Diet Coke....sigh good memories... So, since I've been sort of feeling left out because I don't really have great advice or ideas, I thought I would share my most treasured treat that I only save when I'm not feeling well.
Take your diet drink of choice and a glass, or plastic cup...whatever you have around. I also recommend ice but that's just a personal preference. Now, normally I don't drink my pop out of a cup, I normally just drink out of the can/bottle/44oz foundtain cup but for this, it's better to have a cup and you'll see why.
I know this picture is slightly creepy looking but I'm REALLY not feeling well today. Anyway, you then take your red vine, chew off both ends and now you have a delicious straw, of course this is just my opinion you can take it or leave it but I recommend you take it or you'll regret for the rest of your life....or not...whatever.
aaah refreshing plus look how much chipper I look now that I'm drinking my dp with a red vine straw...it's like magic..flanking magic...
