Yep. I went into the basement and cleaned out some crap. Then I did some laundry. I also cleaned up the kitchen a bit. All the while, I listened to great music, ate good food and got myself mentally prepared for the upcoming week. Ain’t this what Sundays are for, anyhow?
And it feels like a Sunday to me, too. Does that make any sense? This day has a particular quality about it, at least to me, one of contemplation and serenity, joy mixed with a bit of sadness. It doesn’t have anything to do with church, really — I just think Sunday has a personality all its own.
As I went through my things in the basement, I stumbled upon some vintage 7-Up bottles, back from the days when you would return your bottles to the grocery store for your nickle or dime, and soft drink companies used real sugar. Man, did sodas taste so much better back then! It was with real joy that I found the Pepsi company to be releasing their “Throwback” line of products: Pepsi and Mountain Dew, both featuring real sugar. Mountain Dew, quite honestly, I can take or leave (sorry, kids). But the Pepsi Throwback is a real treasure. It reminded me why I used to love drinking cola as a kid. My first sip brought happy memories flooding through my brain, as the carbonated goodness tickled my tonsils in a way they hadn’t been tickled in many a moon. This Pepsi was the kind that you could savor, with a clean, pleasant glow about it, and real cola taste. It’s a fabulous thing, and I suggest it to all who want to see how it should be done, instead of accepting that modern, corn syrup concoction as the genuine article.
Okay, I better go attend to the rest of my day. Thank you for your time!
