    Got a mate who works in the beveridge industry. They manufacture under license. The ‘special formulation’ is delivered as a syrup. Water & other ingredients are added to make the final product. More economical that way.

    Why not? Love Chunky soups in the winter time, even canned such as Campbell’s Soup. Served with crusty bread & it’s a hearty meal.

    Then attack her with the one thing a Karen can't defeat, someone who's more important than her.

    I feel entitled, like those brats in the store.

    I'm neutral grey at best. If anything, I can have my Step mom go after the other Karen's. She done so before and won.

    Okay, actual learn moment.


    Today I learned that Cauliflower can be used as imitation potatoes for people on keto. It can be also used as rice! That's awesome!!!

    This fascinates me more than it probably should.

    And now I'm going to start orchestrating conversations so that the topic of Dr. Pepper can come up solely so I can drop this fun fact like I've always known about it. ;) 

    I kid, I kid.

    But also not really.

    Then you'll be fascinated to know that back in the '80s, Pepsi had the 6th largest navy in the world for a short while. Just look up Pepsi navy.

    Just read about it online and, I must say, that that was one of the most interesting and funniest things I've ever read. Thank you for that :lol :lol :lol
