Love soda-licious


Happy Valentine’s, dear reader! Love is definitely in the air at Tom Thumb where 12-packs of Coke, Diet Coke, and Coke Zero soar in a Texas-sized display by the checkouts. I had a fizz-ical reaction to this splendid stack and itsĀ effervescent kissesĀ in red, silver, and black.

Be still, my beating heart.

Many happy returns

Wanna go with me to the library?
