I need a drink. It’s been a rather overwhelming week.
I need to remind myself that I’m not Superman. But goddamn it, I wish I were.
I wish I could freeze time. I would use that stretch of timeless period to finish all my work ahead of time. I wish I could turn back time too, so that I can warn myself that the “nap” I was going to take would turn into a 7-hour slumber that will cause me to miss a very important 8am class. Or better yet, I wish I could just run on no sleep, because sometimes, I think sleep is just a freaking waste of time.
But no. Unfortunately, I’m very much human. I get cranky when my meal is pushed back later. I get bitchy when I didn’t have my morning cup of joe. I get delirious when I try to survive on 4 hours of sleep for several days in a row. And for god’s sake, when I’m tired, I can sleep through 2 freaking alarm clocks and a vibrating cell phone in my hand. Which caused me to miss class, but I don’t want to talk about it.
It’s been a hard week. And right now, I just need a drink.
I probably have a different choice of beverage from most people though. One time my housemate Kenny asked me if I wanted to go out for a drink. I said I would, but I would probably humiliate him by ordering an iced coffee instead of a Coors or Budlight.
Or a Caramel Macchiato:
My housemate can spend $600 a night on alcohol with his chemistry engineer buddies. Yup, I don’t think it’s a good idea to “go for a drink” together, since my idea of having a hard-core drink is sipping double-espresso from dainty little cups.
So yeah. I’m a wimp when it comes to alcohol. First of all, I’m a lightweight. And second of all, I just don’t want to get into liking alcohol…because I know myself. I’m an extremist, and once I start liking alcohol…you’ll be listening to me croaking “Party in the USA” by the road every night, empty bottle in hand.
Anyway. Guess what. The folks at Zevia are challenging everyone’s idea of a drink with their awesome stevia-sweetened sodas. Let me just come clear that I DO NOT like Stevia. I put it in my coffee once and had to throw the entire pot out. Stevia is nasty, and I was pissed, because that was good Almond Toffee-flavored coffee I had brewed.
But. Zevia actually doesn’t have that awful aftertaste that Stevia has. Yet it contains Stevia. I’m confused. What? Huh? How?
I’m not gonna waste any of my precious brain cells figuring how, I just know it’s good. And so satisfying served chilled. Is there anything more invigorating than the sweet sting of carbonated water bubbling down into your belly on a hot, stressful day? Nope.
And guess what. Zevia is offering you a free giveaway: a mixed 6-pack of their sodas, including their new product, Dr Zevia (insert low, throaty, sexy tone here):
Say hello to the sexier, hipper version of Dr. Pepper. It’s crisp. It’s refreshing. It’s spicy. Try it.
