A little while back, I won a Pepsi Throwback package from Elizabeth at Table 4 Five. The package arrived earlier this week and included a trucker hat that I passed on to my dad, a lunch box, a radio, a USB powered Glitter “lava” like lamp, and 2 cans of Throwback pop.
I don’t normally drink caffeinated beverages, so I stuck them in the fridge thinking I’d offer them to the next caffeine-imbibing person that came over. Yesterday morning though, I decided I wanted to drink one of those pops (gee, maybe that’s part of the reason I was still trying to make myself go to bed at 10:30 last night?) For some reason, I decided to flip the can over and look at the expiration date. Then I had to laugh.
When they say Throwback, they mean it! If you can’t read those, both of those cans of pop are past the expiration date… one by a week, and one by a month! I’m used to drinking out of date pop, so I drank it anyways, but I did find it amusing.
And it gave me something better to write about than the fact that there are no admin jobs ever available in the classifieds. (No, I’m not unemployed… I’m mostly looking for a friend who is really unhappy in her job, but that’s not to say I wouldn’t pursue something if it looked fantastic!)
