I know, the gasps are echoing around the community. For the month of October, I read many blog posts advising that Wrimos need to have ample stocks of essential supplies on hand. Essentials being: chocolate, candy, frozen pans of lasagna, and more chocolate. Fuel the creative brain! Munchies are inevitable!
Well, I’ve done really well for the most part, refusing this advice. However, one little vice has crept back into my life: Diet Coke.
I sure hope my trainer isn’t reading this.
It started last Saturday at the library write-in. After a couple of word wars I felt bleary and blurgy. I needed some quick pep, without calories. A quick trip to the next-door Safeway and I clutched my bottle of Diet Coke like Gollum who recovered his Precious. It worked, but now I’m craving it more and more when writing (but not when coding — strange).
But I can quit Diet Coke again, right? Like I’ve quit 3 times before…
