Official Last Drink

I, Fubar5, am at this very moment drinking my last, I repeat LAST, cup of soda for this month. I will alow myself two cans of soda and one cream soda every month, as of this very moment. I will be depending on you, my BFC buddies, to help me, and tell me I am not insane. I know you guys can do it, because you are my BFC buddies!!!

i can understand the cans of soda part, but, fubar, you are going to give up cream soda? you can't do that, can you? and, plus, why would you even want to?

man, that is just crazy. giving up cream soda. what are you thinking.

Well, that isn't exactly the motivation I was looking for but....I am going to drink cream soda, but only once a month. I want it to stay special, if I drink it to often, then it won't be.So I am not totally giving up cream soda, I am not going to drink it as often.

OK Fubar,
What's the deal?? Why give up cream soda?
That's like giving up air or water!

Is it part of a deal with your Mom for getting the $70 cycling shoes?

Oh, I guess fubar's just going through a phase.

He'll get real ascetic for a while, and when finally he's living under a rock and eating nothing but wild berries and drinking the dew that runs off of leaves in the morning--eventually he'll get tired of it and come back to his senses.

I hope.

I know. We're just teasing you. (I still think you're going through a phase, though.)

Don't feel alone--for example, I'm going through my post-retirement-middle-age-crisis stage right now, but I feel confident it will be over any decade now.

a post-retirement-middle-age-crisis stage, eh? that sounds interesting. have you bought a screaming red convertible sports car yet and just not broken it to all your bike forums buddies? huh JonR? are you holding out on us? first fubar gives up cream soda (even if it is just a phase, and even if he isn't totally giving it up) and then you go and buy a flashy, expensive sports car.

i guess i am the only sane one left...i just hope i don't have to eat you guys when we run out of food and you start to die off from malnutrition...wait, what was that? oh, yeah, that was my oh-no-school-is-going-to-start-back-in-two-weeks stage. sorry you had to bear witness to that.

Well, actually I haven't bought that red sports car, but I have a good friend who started REALLY getting into motorcycles (like buying two more of them) when he hit about 45 years. That's fairly classic, I think....

I really don't mind reaching "a certain age." It took this long to get to know a few things a lot of other people don't. (Sorry, can't reveal any of them here!)

Relax, you've got 35-40 years till you enter that phase--that's over a million miles away, at your current rate of cycling!

Sure, you could tell us, but you'd have to kill us. Right?
Some sort of DoD secret???

Come on Jon, cough up those pearls of wisdom!
(You don't want to swallow them, they could do some real damage!!!)
