Normally I'm a Caffeine Free Diet Coke sort of guy. I live by it. But over the past few weeks, I've been mixing it up a lot. In addition to the Caffeine Free Diet Coke, I've been having Diet Mug Root Beer, Diet Sprite, and Diet Mountain Dew. All of those drinks taste sort-of-tolerable, which is about the best I can hope for from something that has zero calories. So far, I definitely like the change. Miniscule variety is the spice of life.
I can't really say for sure why. Maybe I have just become bored with Diet Coke. But, I think that it's more related to the fact that in the past I added variety with a couple non-diet soft drinks each week, but now that I haven't had non-diet pop in more than four months, I need to get that variety from somewhere else.
