The End of my world as I know it

There are few things in this world that I can't live without. But I shudder to think that we may run out of just a few essentials.

If you have known me for very long you know that DIET COKE is right up there in my life. God, Diet coke and so on. It is water to me, the nectar of the god's if they stopped making it you would all be attending either a funeral or visiting me on the 5th floor.

And if you have been in our store very often, ZIP DRY! When we get down to the last box, we wonder when it will be arriving. We have it on auto ship, we sell well over 100 bottles a month. Most people buy two at a time just in case they were to run low. Well, last week I called and made sure my auto ship would be arriving on time. (just one box left) The woman who barley spoke english assured me it would ship and verified my credit card number (yes they have used the same card for 15 months but just to be safe). This morning I get a call from her, asking me where I am located, I answered, "Idaho" and wondered why she cared. You see there are 3 other Crop Paper Scissors who order Zip Dry and they sent mine to the one in Texas. This is not the first time this has happened but never with Zip Dry. She then told me that I couldn't have it by this weekend. Well, can you imagine, I blew a head gasket, asked to talk with Michael and he wasn't in..... I told her that I have made the same order for the last 15 months and she needed to figure out a way to get it to me. She told me to hold. She told me they can't ship it overnite as its a hazzardous material. At this point I didn't care if she had to drive it to me from New Jersey we were going to have Zip dry for the Red Lion this weekend.

Alas, they are going to overpack it, (whatever that means and send it overnite) I called my mom and told her she laughed, imaging how that conversation went. Teehee.

Like I said, don't mess with the things I hold dear. Or else my head spins and I spew bile. Its not pretty! not pretty at all.

I almost couldn't breathe until you said it would be here. You see I am out and would have to just sit and stare at the wall the whole weekend without it. I have bareley been getting by without it. And to think I was so skeptical at first, of course I was that way with the crop-a-dile too until you showed me the light. Now my husband has suggested I get it surgically attached to my body. LOL Glad to know it will be here and really glad to know that you did not spew bile!
