Don’t Drink It Under Any Circumstances!!!

As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum Beloved And Beautiful Asiatic Black Bebies!!

So, I’m staying in this “hotel” and they have a restaurant and I ordered dinner last night but they didn’t have any juices, which is what I usually drink – A.J. – Apple Juice.

So, after I couldn’t take it any more, I caved in and bought a purple soda.

That was the most addictive thing I have done since I stopped smoking cigarettes.

As soon as I finished it, I wanted another one.

I see how people can keep two liters of soda in the fridge.

It makes you want more.

I even bought one tonight with my dinner.

But this time the urge to drink another one after I finished was stronger.

And if the soda machine was closer,

I don’t doubt that I would have gotten another one this time.

BUT

Al Hamdulillah

alhamdulillah

It’s on the other side of the courtyard

Past the swimming pool

AND

I like being hidden

So, I stayed in my room.

I am going to drink water out of the bathroom sink

Like I used to do when I was little.

It didn’t kill me.

But that soda will.

My childhood best friend used to drink a lot of soda

AND

She was always in the hospital with

KIDNEY INFECTIONS.

That bathroom water will quench my thirst

Like beverages are supposed to

Instead of making me thirstier

Like that soda.

I never realized how much better juice is physically and mentally than soda.

I remember before I stopped drinking soda that there were certain foods I would eat and I could not stop without drinking soda after it. They seemed to CALL for soda. Especially chips. And hamburgers and fries. I’m so thankful I don’t eat any of those foods anymore.

It just doesn’t feel right eating a vegetarian meal and then drinking a soda.

I always have milk or juice or even iced chai or coffee.

It must be about three years since I had a soda. It’s been so long that I had to REALLY think to remember the last time I had one. But I’m a Goddess and I revel in the opportunity to exercise my mental powers.

Someone had left some at the masjid and my son and I found it. He was about eleven and had never had soda. So since it was flat, we drank some.

I had always made our drinks using honey to sweeten them and there is a huge difference.

I suppose I could make my own drinks now, being homeless, too. Except tea and Hot Chocolate. I never thought about it.

I usually carry honey in my purse, but I had left it in the PPI when I got locked out and haven’t replaced it since.

That should’ve told me I was slipping out of character

AND

HERE

I

AM

DRINKING

SODA

!!!

Bright side is I’m better able to relate to and see what you are doing.

DON’T DO IT!!!

WHITE LINES

In New Orleans, one of the first things I noticed is the sweet way they refer to soda as a “cold drink”

I am trying to change the “cold drink” to include juice, water, milk, tea, coffee and lemonade. And that’s it. No energy drinks. No lean. And definitely no SODA.
