Has anyone noticed that when Pepsi goes flat it tastes like pencil shavings?

Anyone?

snort!!!

And this is why we've been friends for (ahem) a few years...

Biddie said...

Heidi - LOL. Of course, this is a compltetely valid question.

Gabriel said...

WHAT??? LOL.

Well, that's your punishment for drinking Pepsi. Coke tastes much better, especially Coke Zero. I'd say like 'crayon shavings', it that thing existed.

C'mon, Biddie. Abandon Pepsi, and join me in the darker side of pops...

Heather said...

LMAO!

I never really thought of it.. But now I am going to let my pepsi go flat and try!

I was drinking the flat Pepsi today which is where you came up with this?? lol. I wouldn't say pencil shavings but it was not good.
Oh and Gabriel, normally Coke is my drink of choice.

Alekx said...

Yuck
No wonder I stay away from Pepsi. Well unless you go to Taco Bell then you have no choice.

Am I rambling?

Biddie said...

gabriel - I only drink diet pepsi, the regular stuff makes my teeth itch. Too much sugar.
I don't mind diet coke. At least it doesn't taste like pencil shavings.

heather - Well, to be honest, it is usually just the two litre bottles. Dunno why. Maybe cuz a small bottle never gets the chance to flat in this house.
You WANT to try the pencil shavings? lol You rock :)

KC - It was your pepsi that made me think of it..You know, the pepsi that you drank while my parched dry throat constricted with spasms of pain and agony.
That one.

alekx - I have not been to Taco Bell in sooo long. I think that fountain pop is exemt from the whole pencil shaving thing. Dunno. Now I have to try that, too.

Heidi the Hick said...

My favourite kind of pop is Rickard's Red.

Or Sleeman's.

Or Alexander Keith's is pretty good.

No idea what it tastes like when flat though...

(this is one of the funniest comment trails EVER!)

Biddie said...

Heidi - LOL. I don't drink any of that stuff.
Ever.
Yuck.
Mind you, me and Cap'n Morgan are GOOD friends and I can barely remember my Jim Beams years.
Or Southern Comfort.
Not much comfort in THAT crap.

Gosh I have missed you. Have been a lot more at MySpace and painting and god children and all lately.

Read a little bit of the Bible everyday. Just like you have to eat a little food everyday to keep your body strong, a little of the Word of God everyday will help build up your faith, your spirit. You don't even have to understand what you read any more than you have to understand how your body uses the nutrients in food.

Just read. New Testament. You will get strong. You'll see!

little wanderer said...

What!!!!!!!!!!!! now then we need to talk, I really need to know why and when you ate pencil shavings!!!!!!!!!!

Ew! Nope, I don't drink the stuff.

When I drink soda, it is usually Coke. Coke tastes like paint varnish when it is warm and flat.

I am one of those people who is ruining the planet by drinking 5 bottles of water a day. I hang my head.

Heather said...

Pencil shavings and paint varnish...wot are we drinking??No wonder people get gut rot from drinking too much of that stuff..


LOL!

aims said...

Sorry Biddie - I don't drink pop so I can't be of any help.

I like your saying - we need to stop saying crazy....I like it a lot!

whimsical brainpan said...

No, but next time I drink a flat Pepsi I'll pay attention and report back.

dilling said...

i don't know the last time i had a pepsi...or a coke....

Tod said...

The only time I ever tasted pencil shavings was when Toughty McRoughty made me during a woodwork lesson. Perhaps I'll buy some Pepsi just for old times sake.

Phoenix5 said...

Flat Pepsi??? I can't stand Pepsi, especially canned or bottled, so I wouldn't know what the flat kind tastes like. I'm a Coke boy, through and through, and none of that diet stuff, or that imposter, Coke Zero, either! Btw, aspartame has been found to be more addictive than heroin or cocaine, so watch it with that crap! Just thought you might like to know that.... or not...
