Woah, Knifegill. That's a lot of soda.
I didn't like soda. I only liked diet but diet Coke has caffeine and I don't like to have caffeine past morning. They never have diet soda at restaurants that isn't diet Coke or Pepsi. So sometimes I'd get diet 7-up at home, but not often.
Oddly our parrot LOVES diet 7-up. She'll do almost anything to get it.
