Farewell my Last Remaining British Citrus Zest Diet Coke :`(


Place: Heathrow Terminal Five

Date: 31 December 2008…

Scene: Crazy Q8y Girl with baggy jeans and oversized miu miu bag strapped to her shoulder, standing infornt of the WH Smith casheir trying to empty the contents of  an overflowing mesh basket she is carrying… a long line is forming behind her, puzzled travellers are gawking at the crazy lady who has taken more than 30 different bottles of  liquids: all types of innocent smoothies plus bottle upon bottle of Citrus Zest Diet Coke, and the odd chocolate here and there…

Yes, i confess, i have a weakness for everything that is edible and made in Great Britian. I especially ADORE the Citrus Zest Diet Coke. I have brought about 10-15 bottles back home with me to reside in a little beverages fridge in the computer room and to be opened under complete desperate measures. Butootee is NOT ALLOWED any by the way.

Alas, nothing can stay forever! Five Months later… and this is what i have left… :`(


It physically hurt opening that last bottle. I was saying my goodbyes, taking tiny teeny sips only to preserve it. I had no other choice & only half a bottle left. I decide it was about time i took it to the big fridge since it will be lonely… i had to drink it in the next few days…

i open the Big fridge… and guess what?!

Hidden between the jars… there is a BRAND NEW UNOPENED BOTTLE!!!!



I now remember that one day Butootee decided to drink it, and i hid it away in the big fridge! Do you know the feeling when u wear an old winter coat and suddenly u put ur hands in ur pockets and find a forgotten 20 KD there?!

I’m feeling the exact same rush of adrenaline…!

Even Tootee is sooo happy… he is hugging the newly discovered bottlee and simply won’t let go!!!!


Now that i know that i have one more bottle left for dire emergencies only… i feel much much better… and i simply suffer from a hopless case of citrus zest diet coke mania 😀
