As I finish down my last swallow
of Diet Dr. Pepper,
it becomes unavoidably evident
that I will be going to the store.
Today.
Within the next few hours
I will have to have another.
I am an addict
I openly admit it.
And it will take all
of that desire
to get me out of the house
by myself.
Iím funny that way,
especially on a Saturday.

I hear you, Lori. I drink Diet Dr. Thunder, WalMarts' generic Dr. Pepper. I like it even better than Diet Dr. Peppefr.

Jerry,
As soon as I finish drinking my coffee I switch to pop. On a good day I can squeak by on 2. ~L

Pinkpepsi,
I used to be a Pepsi person myself then I became diabetic and switched to diet pop. Tried a lot of diets and Dr. Pepper was my favorite. I heard it is the worst for you.
