I used to love drinking Coke. A lot.
Especially cool Coke after scorching sun.
The thrilling taste of carbon dioxide bubbles bursting on your tongue.
The smell of sugar in disguise.
The feeling that you always craved more,
Even when your teeth is coated with caffeine and turned yellow.
It was full of excitement, refreshment, and exhilaration,
And I was addicted to it.
Until one day it excites me no more,
So I returned back to water.
Pure, plain, ordinary water.
And it became my new lover ever since.
The colourless, transparent, liquid makes me feel human.
Just like the people who lived before us thousands of years ago,
When Coke was a thing of imagination,
And drinking was more for the body than tongue.
It was then that I realized,
Simplicity is the taste of real happiness.
For drinks, and for life. =)
