Denizens of Blogworld you have spent the last 48 hours voting to decide the fate of a single, apparently abandoned, aged can of Dr. Pepper residing in my work fridge. I noticed that almost all of you were unable to give a straight yes or no. Most of you hedged your answers or gave qualifiers. Here are the results:
Drink the Dr. Pepper: 14 votes
Don’t Drink It:: 4 votes
It’s Too Old To Drink: 2 votes
Rambled Without Saying Anything Decisive: 2 people
As I said, I will abide by the votes here, but I will take the advice a few of you gave and notify the office to ask if there is anyone who suspects it’s theirs before I do away with the little feller. I’ll send out a group e-mail. They’ll find that very entertaining. To those of you who thought it is too old to drink, I say pish posh. I don’t think soda expires or goes bad. I worked in a Pepsi bottling plant every summer during college. We also made Dr. Pepper there. We were allowed to take home 2 cases of soda per week. I drank half during the summer and saved the other 12 cases to take to college to drink throughout the year. I know for a fact that Dr. Pepper is good for a lot longer than 2 months even if it’s not refrigerated. The polls are closed. Thank you for your participation.
