Does anyone else have an addiction? I mean, besides drugs? Because, I’m not addicted to drugs, I’m addicted to the elixir of life…aka, Mountain Dew. I have at least two a day, and I’m not even kidding. It tastes good at the moment…but after that you get this nasty aftertaste that’s like rotten oranges…not that I know what rotten oranges taste like, but you know, it’s the writer in me…making up analogies that I have never experienced. However, the one analogy that is completely experienced is this, and here I quote Laurell K. Hamilton: “Blood like copper pennies on my tongue…” I have completely experienced that one. It really does taste like pennies…especially when you get hit in the mouth and you are trying to spit the blood out before you swallow it… I have way too many ellipses in here. Catch you later.
