Object of the Day: Diet Dr. Pepper Can

Today's object is a Diet Dr. Pepper Can. It is a very special can of Diet Dr. Pepper. Why? Because I drank from it. Yes. Me. Paul Mathis actually consumed the liquid contents of THIS can of Diet Dr. Pepper. And now, empty, it faces an eternal life in a landfill somewhere, never again to be enjoyed. But it is not without its share of pride, for it did not contribute to weight gain. And for 5 short minutes, it had a purpose. Someone appreciated it for what it was. It may be disposed. It may be lost. Stepped on. Recycled. Used as a makeshift ashtray. Lost in a large pile of its discarded brethren, unique no longer. But it shall never be forgotten.
