“Hi, my name is Jess and I’m a Coke addict.”

Believe it or not, addictions to legal substances, such as Coca-Cola, are actually quite common and in some cases, more dangerous than addictions to illegal substances. Fortunately, my addiction isn’t too bad, but it definitely has it’s amusing stories!
For instance, I went to bed and fell asleep around 11 last night. I woke up around 1 with a severe headache that soon revealed itself to be a migraine. Now, the trouble with being pregnant and getting migraines is that there’s not a while lot you can do about them. Taking a standard, pregnancy safe pain killer, such as Tylenol, just doesn’t cut it. Aspirin is a huge no-no. That leaves caffeine. Coke has caffeine…
A few days ago, my husband bought 2 2-liters of Coke, and teasingly hid one of them from me because I’m a fish for Coke. I told him I already knew it was in the garage, to which he admitted. “There aren’t a lot if places in the garage to hide it. I’ll find it, you know.” He seemed convinced that I wouldn’t.
So, at nearly 5 this morning, I woke him up. “I need caffeine.” He graciously got up to get the hidden Coke for me, and I added, “It’s in the attic, isn’t it?”
His too-quick “no!” told me I was right. “What made you think of the attic?” he asked me once he returned with my gold.
“Well you seemed so sure that I wouldn’t be able to find it. I thought to myself, ‘Where could he hide it that he knows I can’t get to (being 8 months pregnant)?’ and I of course I can’t climb the ten foot ladder, especially with no one spotting me… So yeah, attic.” He couldn’t believe I’d figured it out, even though there was no way for me to physically look there.
I tried to tell him when he hid it…I can find anything hidden if I want it badly enough!
