After-School Special

The other night I picked my kids up from their dad's. I knew I still had a late night of homework ahead. I told my kids to go in the house, and I would be right back. FunnyMan, my 15 year old says, "You going to get a drink?"

I say, "Yep."

He says, "Lemme guess. A Diet Coke."

I reply, "Uh-huh."

Then he says, "You're addicted."

I argue, "I'm not addicted."

He challenges with, "Then don't go."

I smile. "Just go in the house," I scold.

"...don't go..." Hehehe. Like I'm some sort of alcoholic or something. Part of me wanted to say, "I can quit whenever I want to." Hahahahaha!

For the record, we have an unlimited supply of fountain soda at work. But I mostly drink water. Besides, my Topamax makes soda taste not-so-great. So, when I do drink it, it's more like a craving or to stay awake. Not really an addiction...really. Tee hee.
