I'm trying to give up diet coke. I love diet coke. McDonald's is making it hard, though, with their summer promotion of $1 drinks, any size. Yesterday, my almost-daily trip through the drive-thru provided more than my addiction fix. McDonald's has new straws. Wider circumference, groovy purplish color with white stripe. How can a new straw provide me with such a charge?! I don't know why, it just does. Bravo Mikky-D!
