My dearest DC,

Nothing gets me going like you do.

To me, you are quite simply... perfect.

You are my strength and my weakness.

You are one of the very first things I think of when I wake up in the morning because it is then that I need you so.

Our relationship began when I was in college and while others were touting their need for coffee, I stuck by your side never giving coffee another thought.

You make my heart beat a little faster and my eyes twinkle a little brighter.

I'm no fool, I know I'm not alone in this love. I know that you have lots of admirers, but when it's just us, my world quiets and I feel like I'm the only one. Thank you for that.

Thank you, too for always being there on my grocery list and in my refrigerator, because I don't think I could go a day without your smile. It's true, I have a jealous streak and have even warned family members and babysitters alike never, under no circumstances to take the last of you or there will be hell to pay.

I know I don't tell you often enough how much you mean to me with your no calories, no sugar and sweet wonderful help-me-get-up-and-go chemicals I can't pronounce, but it is your secret formula that does the trick every time. I so enjoy the pleasure of your company.

I hate to admit that I have been unfaithful when you weren't available, but Diet Pepsi nor Diet Dr. Pepper are nearly as refreshing as you. It's your effervescent personality that keeps me loyal today and always.

Yours truly,

This post is for Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop: Prompt 2.) Write a love poem to a favorite food. It was not a food, but a drink, Diet Coke that I chose to profess my undying love to. I have written about my obsession once (I Heart Diet Coke) or twice (I Don't Like Coffee) before.

This is so cool! I am also into Diet Coke and feel very much the same way about it. It's funny how easy words come when it is something that you are passionate about.

Diet Coke for breakfast does not sound good at all to me! You can have it!

You almost made me want to drink diet pop. Great post although I'm still sticking to coffee 24/7

LOL, there are SO many bloggers that live and die by their Diet Coke. Myself, I can't stand the taste. Give me a real Coke (or Coke Zero) any day.

Wait. What?
Diet Coke has been cheating on me with YOU!?
I thought that what DC and I had was special...
My heart is broken.

I totally and completely understand this love because I have the same love.

Do you like a lemon or lime in it for something extra special?

Oh man, just the thought sends my mouth watering.

I used to be a chronic junkie for DC, but I given it up - I do not drink ANY soda anymore.

I like how you acknowledge that you aren't the only one. Very nice! A liquid love!

I love starting my day with coffee, but my sister is a Diet Coke drinker all the way!

People are really into their Diet coke, aren't they??? This was cute!

Coffee. A lot of coffee. Until I get home from work.
Then, Pepsi. Not diet. Not Coke.
And maybe an herbal tea or hot chocolate before bed.

I'm not a DC drinker, but I completely know how you feel. Dr. Pepper is my liquid cocaine. I love it!

DC is here in my embrace at this very moment. If loving DC is wrong then I don't wanna be right.

Very funny post Tonya. I love regular coke but my gf is also a devoted DC fan so when the regular coke is out DC is definitely my backup soda. I'm also a coffee freak so it is safe to say that caffeine is my drug of choice. Btw I really want a coke now so Coke owes you royalties.

Very cute, Tonya! I'm not a soda addict, but I love me a Dr. Pepper once a week or so. That could become a bad habit for sure!

In my younger days, before kids, I worked at a bakery at the mall and would drink TONS of Diet Pepsi (don't hate). Detoxing off that stuff? Sucked.

But don't try and take away my 20 ounces of coffee each morning. Just don't.

Geesh, you sure do like your Diet Coke! lol : ) It's funny, I never drink sodas ever but when I come stay with you guys, there's something about sitting those Diet Cokes sitting in your fridge that call to me. Hmm.. interesting how that works out.
