continued … Well anyway, it doesn’t happen very often that i have an insatiable urge for something sweet .… AND that i’m really thirsty at the same time …
At that point any semblance of clear thinking ended. I made the ridiculous decision to bring the Coke into the bedroom where I could sit on the edge of the bed and drink to my heart’s content.
Staring into the refrigerator, my eyes half open, feeling dull and thoughtless, I found the Coke on the bottom shelf.
Those litres of Coke are heavy! The carbonation makes the surface hard as a rock. I definitely did not want to drop it on my toe.
I wrapped both hands around the bottle, lifted it out of the refrigerator and moved toward the hallway. When the refrigerator door closed I was in complete darkness.
I pictured myself sitting on the edge of the bed tasting the sweet Coke as I moved toward the bedroom door. I was so thirsty!
Three short steps into the room I shuffled to the right. While moving along the foot of the bed, I removed my right hand from the bottle, reached up and with great deliberation, turned the cap of the Coke bottle counter clockwise.
There was a fucking explosion!
