Vince likes to live dangerously! For years I only drank Dr. Pepper with real sugar (no corn syrup). I’ve heard you can only get them in Texas but I’m not sure. Yesterday I walked outside to see three tree cutters drinking a green can (real sugar) of Dr. Pepper. Vince said “Oops!” He told them not to let me see but he was joking. He knew I didn’t really care. I had fixed chicken and noodles for lunch and asked them if they wanted to eat with us. At first they said no but the decided they would eat. I had sweet tea, unsweetened tea, water and Dr. Pepper. One of them wanted a DP with real sugar. OK . . that’s 4 down. Then we were leaving to take Addie back to Nicole and Vince handed them a 12 pack of REAL SUGAR Dr. Pepper . . that I cannot buy in Missouri. What am I going to do with him? Lock up the good stuff when he’s around?
Maybe he’s thinking if I realize I can only get real sugar Dr. Pepper in Texas, I’ll decide we should stay there. No . . he can hardly get me to go back and pack so I know he isn’t thinking that but he really may be setting me up to say “Darn, I miss those real sugar Dr. Peppers!” and he will say . . it was your choice to move from Texas.
The truth is . . I drink the Aldi brand, Dr. Thunder, and even though they have corn syrup, I like them better and I can buy them here. I just brought the 12 packs of sugar DP because I have a lot of Dr. Pepper in Texas and I’m not going to drink it all so I’ve been sticking a few 12 packs in the car as I had extra space and that’s how they ended up here.
