Ulff. Slept through my first two classes today (not by choice, I might add). By a stroke of sheer luck, something woke me up at 12:30.
The Storm Incident
[A preface for those unaquainted with Storm (a soft drink). Think Sprite or 7-Up with caffeine... unless it's procured from the fountain, where it has no caffeine. Yeah, I think it's strange, too.]
So my tired self stumbles into the hall where my class is held. I need caffeine, so I scope the options in the vending machine and see Storm. When was the last time I had that, I wonder? Never, it seems, so I take my chances and drop fifty cents and take the can.
Around the time I've downed half of it in class, I turn the can around. I'm greeted by... Jar Jar Binks. Beyond the superficial "ugh" reaction, I was pretty baffled. I mean, how long ago did Episode 1 come out... or at the very least, come out on video? All I knew at the time was, it'd been a while. Anyway, I checked the "Drink by Date on Bottom of Can" date:
Apr 17 00
Great. I've just consumed half of a six-month-old (at the latest) soft drink. I suddenly realized how horribly flat it was.
I suppose I could report this to the vending company, but that'd require me to admit that I actually bought a Storm.
