"When I Was Seventeen..."

In a very unexpected turn of events, I've suddenly developed a taste for Diet Coke, which I've always unflinchingly hated. Not because it's diet, just because I don't like cola. (I've probably eaten my body weight in Splenda, and I have nothing against aspertame because (if you weren't already aware of this) it tastes like sugar because it's made from sugar.) Except suddenly, Diet Coke is okay. It joins the ranks of eggs, cheese, oatmeal, potato salad, and other staple foods that people frequently enjoy and I irrationally hated until recently, when I grudgingly decided they're okay for no particular reason.

Anyway, this is why I just bought my first bottle of Diet Coke at the age of 23. I'm a late bloomer.
