No Monster = Desperate Times
Tuesday, April 15, 2008
Bro is a big time creature of habit. Just as I can easily predict what he will order for lunch, I can almost always assure you that he will be opening a can of Monster energy drink shortly thereafter. Any type of caffeine injected beverage will do, but basically Bro cannot live without caffeine. Today neither of us brought a Monster to work, and after lunch we were both majorly sleepy. I finally caved in and made some Earl Grey tea, while Bro tried to look for a soda machine.

I guess he couldn't find one because the next thing I knew, he was popping open a can of Sunkist that was already sitting in the room. After a few minutes he asked, "Do you know if soda has an expiration date?"

"Why?" I asked. I've never even thought about that before, and actually have no clue.

"Well, do you think it's safe to be drinking this, considering there's a picture on the can of Sam from Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers?"

Okay Bro.... a couple of things...

1) Sunkist? I don't know anyone who drinks this stuff. It's okay, I guess. If you're, like, 13 years old.

2) According to my trusty friend, IMDb, LOTR: The Two Towers came out in 2002. Let's do the math. 6 years.

3) I looked it up. Drinking a carbonated soda 6 months after the "expiration date" should have no adverse effects. Typically these expiration dates are in fact "best by" dates, meaning that is the date you want to drink it by for optimal flavor. Typically sodas will retain their structure and flavor for years after the "expiration date".

All I gotta say is, if you end up calling in sick tomorrow or end up with a bad case of diarrhea or something, I will never stop teasing you about it.

    I don't sunkist even has caffeine in it, lol. It probably didn't taste very good....a while back I drank a pop that was in the storage room of our church which was from last summer and it tasted like dust! yuck lol I didn't know it was "old" pop til after I drank it and noticed the funny taste.
