this tastes funny

  1. i have a great imagination. couple that with thinking too much and you are bound to have problems.
    i am addicted to diet cola. i prefer diet pepsi but if diet coke is on sale ill get that.
    so im sitting in my million degree living room, drinking a large diet coke with tons of ice. because i was so thirsty i chugged most of it. somewhere towards the bottom it started to taaste funny. a very strange taste, kind of like lemon. acidy.
    and it left the most horrible after taste in my mouth. it nearly made me gag.
    it tasted like urine smells.

    now i dont get along very well with my stepson damien and im wondering if he could have, would have, peed in my pop. its not out of the realm of reality although i would prefer to think he wouldnt do something like that. and then i remembered when my dad was abusive to my mom and i let all of the air out of his tires and hid all of the toilet paper in the house. kids do rotten things. and he had just done something i was *****ing about.

    the thoughts of drinking pee was making me sick. i couldnt get rid of that aftertaste no matter what i did. and i wasnt going to say anything.

    hey did you pee in my pop? not giving him any ideas
    hey did your kid pee in my pop?...what a question to ask someone.
    so i tried to forget it and just keep an eye on any bottles of pop i had in the house.

    a week went by and i never tasted anything weird in my pop. one day i was sitting in the living room with my sweetie and i just had to say something.

    do you think your kid could have peed in my pop?
    he was stunned as i expected.
    i explained why i was asking.
    as it turned out there were a few bottles of pop with only tiny bits left in them. one was lemon flavored. he poured them all into my bottle.
    boy did i feel like an azz.

    In my humble opinion, Diet Pepsi with a "lemon twist" does taste kind of funky. . . . I'll just stick to my "classic" Diet Pepsi, thank you!

    Good story thisnurse! The thought of you stewing over the pee in your pop for days made me chuckle a little (in a good way, not a sarcastic way)

    On a related note, the first time I ever tried that Pepsi twist, I said "it tastes like p*ss."

    Glad to hear there are no criminal urinaters in your home! Good call not asking him about it, it would have given him ideas!

    LOL. Well, anything is possible, I suppose! It *could* have happened. Glad to hear it was just lemon, though. Good story

    Wow - I wonder if urine tastes lemony?

    This is HILARIOUS. I don't like Pepsi twist, either, but I usually do put a bit of lemon into my diet Coke.

    I dunno - I just kinda assumed that urine would taste salty or something?

    I love this BB - there is NOPLACE else in the world where I could have uttered or typed those words!!!!!!

    i had a co-worker with two teen stepsons . the mother had gotten fed up with them and sent them to live with dad. they were big boys and my co-worker was small with a seven yr. old girl. she was always frightened about what they might do. guess the dad didn't do much to control them. she told me that they would sneak out and steal the cars at night, they would take her good kitchen glasses into their room and pee in them then leave it sitting in the room, boobytrap their room by somehow sitting nails point up at the doorway. they finally ran away from home but then returned about a week later demanding to be let back in. my coworker and her daughter were the only ones home and were afraid to let them in. the boys ended up throwing a rock through the window and hitting the woman in the head. she had to call the cops and was taken to ER. i could not imagine living like that. have lost touch with her since then. anyway, the pee made me think of her story.

    A week spent stewing over it, to finally work up the nerve to say something.

    I am SO glad for you that it was mixed pop, but really sorry that you went thru in that week.

    Did your husband see any humor in it or is he freeked that you thought his kid could do such a thing?

    Diabetes Mellitis was named so because of the sweet-tasting urine produced. Then there are those who drink their own urine for their health's sake. Now that is recycling!
