My Onion Pi

If you can figure out the name, you'll know what it's about. Fortunately, I'm literate. I'm also funny on occasion. Just beware of the flying PMS.

Pop


A recent excursion down the “junky foods” aisle of my local food retailer put the Ham-ster in a bit of a tail spin. The task at hand was to purchase a bottle or two of “pop” to go along with a small assortment of cold cuts, cheeses and rolls for a lunch session with a couple of my “group project” people at UB. (Group projects will someday be a blog rant, I’m sure.) Now, the ham-meister doesn’t drink pop. So believe me, was I in for a shock when trying to purchase what used to be known as a “cola”. I know “the girl’s” that were coming over drink that brown liquid, but I couldn’t remember if they were Coke fans or Pepsi fans. I naively thought, “Oh, I’ll just buy a liter of each.”

In the “Coke section” there was: Coca-cola Classic, Caffeine-free Coca-cola Classic, Coca-Cola Zero, Diet Coke, Diet Coke with Lime, Cherry Coke and Diet Coke Cherry.

The “Pepsi section” had: Pepsi, Pepsi One, Diet Pepsi, Caffeine-free Diet Pepsi, Pepsi Wild Cherry, Diet Pepsi Wild Cherry, Diet Pepsi Vanilla, Diet Pepsi Twist and Diet Pepsi Lime.

The ham-ster was confused. When did cola become so complicated? Now, if it’s one thing the ham-ster doesn’t like its things that fall into the category of, “Things That Make My Life More Complicated”. After about two minutes my brain started to hurt, so I left with a liter bottle of Store Brand Cola. Problem solved.

I can’t help but think…if we as a society, put as much thought into a social problem - any social problem…as we do “pop” we probably wouldn’t have half the situations we have today.
Hm-mm. Nuff said.


But…it’s just my onion pi.
Peace & Love, Ham-burger
