The Mom Who Always Drank Pepsi

Fiction By Bridget // 5/6/2009

Once upon a time, there was a Mom Who Always Drank Pepsi. Nobody knew why she did this, and they thought it was dangerous. Her friends formed a committee to help her stop drinking Pepsi. They took steps to prevent her eventual death by caffeine overdose.

One person hid away all the Pepsi in the ground, but the Mom Who Always Drank Pepsi, couldn’t stand this and went to the store to get more. The Committee had a real problem now. How on earth would they hide all the Pepsi in the stores? There was far too much for them to bury. There must be another way.

The Committee met again, and decided the only way to keep the Mom Who Always Drank Pepsi from always drinking Pepsi was to convince the Makers Of Pepsi to stop making Pepsi. The Committee was very convincing, (but doesn’t it seem strange that they weren’t able to convince the Mom Who Always Drank Pepsi to stop drinking Pepsi?) and soon the Pepsi company announced that it was closing its doors.

The Mom Who Always Drank Pepsi was inconsolable, and mourned her beloved Pepsi for Two Full Years. At this time, one of her friends who was not on the Committee told her about Coca Cola. He said it was much better than Pepsi, and suggested that she try it.

The next time he came to visit, he brought with him a can of Coca Cola. She opened it, listening for the pop to make sure it was just as fizzy as Pepsi. She took a small sip. She swirled it around in her mouth until all the bubbles were gone. She swallowed slowly, smiled, (here everybody let out a deep breath) and went ‘Aah.’, like all people do when they’ve just taken a drink of something good.

She giggled a little, and then said, “I like it! It’s better than Pepsi by far!” So from then on, the Mom Who Always Drank Pepsi became the Mom Who Always Drank Coca Cola, although in her later years she tried to stop drinking it, but that is another story altogether, and someday I may tell it if I am so inclined.

The Committee tried the same thing they had tried before, but they were not nearly so successful this time. In fact, the good ladies left the Coca Cola company very much indignant and very much humiliated.

The only sad part of this story is that since the Mom Who Always Drank Coca Cola never stopped drinking Coca Cola, she never discovered the wonders of Dr. Pepper.

The End

*******************

Technically, I wrote this when I was five, but it was originally only three sentences long and was basically, "Once upon a time there was a mom who always drank Pepsi. Then she stopped drinking Pepsi. Then she started drinking Pepsi again." I've changed the ending, and made it a little longer. Hope you guys like it!
