I wanted some type of liquid in portable form, but I didn't want pop (Well, I wanted pop, but I shouldn't, so I ignored that portion of the aisle.) and I didn't want Gatorade/Propel "fitness" "sports drinks," and I couldn't decide what flavor of juice, so that left me with plain old water, which seemed like a waste of money. I thought I'd get some flavored water but I didn't like any of the options — mostly because you had to commit to a six-pack of it, and what if I thought it was totally barfy and could barely drink one? — so in desperation I grabbed some random four-pack of cranberry-flavored water and then got swayed by the BOGO-type special* and snagged a four-pack of cherry limeade (obviously the store's muzak was rotting my brain).
However, I should have read the ingredients portion of the labels before I trotted over to the checkout, because there's some kind of icky artificial sweetner in them and they taste gross. And I'm stuck with six bottles of the stuff. Sigh.
Maybe I can cut it with a tasty adult beverage, and then I won't notice the fake sugar? Hmm. I guess I know what I'll be doing later tonight . . .
