devil drinks soda

If I had my own country, I’d probably ban soda. That and fluorescent lighting. (And Jews for Jesus, Pat Robertson, Mel Gibson, all forms of violence, etc.).

It’s not that I hate soda. I love certain kinds, like Dr. Brown’s black cherry. I just don’t like it when soda becomes a lifestyle–when it becomes necessary at every meal, when someone flips a shit because they didn’t get their third can of Diet Coke that day.

Anyways, the other night I was skipping immaturely around a fancy corporate office (all of the employees had gone home for the evening except the one who’d let me in), checking out the accoutrements and expansive views that I lacked at my nonprofit, basement-level workplace, when I found this: I came across the DIY soda maker after inspecting the refrigerator, the top shelf of which was stocked with free cans of Coke, Dr. Pepper, and other soda options (no juice whatsoever). There is also a standard soda machine about ten steps away from where I took this picture. WTF.

Those are the bottles you have to buy along with the machine. Good freaking lord. At least the “Soda Maker Donations” cup was empty. That gave me some solace.
