Red Bull does *not* give me wings

Today in my infinite wisdom, I decided I'd buy a Red bull, just for the hell of it. Keep in mind that I haven't had one in about 2 1/2 years and I had forgotten the reason it's been so long. The reason? They taste like shit!!

But I had been noticing that around 2:30 every day, I start getting sooo sleepy, so while I was at the store this morning I passed by the Red bull section and thought "Aha, that will help me!". My friend Gina swears by Red Bull, so I figure if it's good enough for Gina, it's good enough for me!

So at 2:30 on the dot, I suck it down and the first thing that hits me is the pure nastiness of the liquid sugar taste. ugh. It tastes like what I imagine battery acid would taste like. It's a small, thin can but man is it hell to drink the whole can down. And, for some reason, I feel compelled to drink the whole thing.

So I sit and wait, waiting for the moment that my wings will grow and I'll get the energized feeling. But alas, it never comes. I'm just left with a heavy feeling in the pit of my stomach, all of a sudden very thirsty for some water -- I guess from the overload of sugar to my system.

So folks, I will not be making a repeat visit with Red bull. No way, no how. I'll just stick with my Code Red Mountain Dew. It might not promise wings, but it has enough caffeine for me!

ROTFLMAOPMP!!!!! Ok first, you drink it BEFORE you need the energy, it takes a little while to kick in! LOL Hence why I'm wired on Wednesday afternoons when I drink 2 Wednesday mornings!!!!

Second, I'm shitting a brick over here that you're "doing it" just because I do it, and I DON'T swear by it! LMFAO

Third, next time, try a shot of jagermeister in it, it tastes like Mike & Ike's!!!!
