No Coke

This morning, there was ample frost on the windshield. I stood looking at this realizing I'd have to scrape. This wasn't something I could give the wipers a once over and it would be fine.

I have no Coca-Cola in the house. I'm trying to cut back my soda consumption. A bunch of us are contemplating an online weight loss support group because we all need to lose a bunch of poundage. Soda is one of the worst things you can have in your house. You shouldn't drink it, period, not even the diet versions. It's just not good on so many levels.

Hence, I have no Coke in the house to test the idea that Coke removes frost from windshields. I thought, "Well, you could go get one bottle and just keep it in the house for the next time." Right. I'd need to hide it and, well, that would defeat the purpose of having it in the house to use for this test because, the next time I have to scrape, I wouldn't remember where I'd stashed it.

I'm best just waiting to see if Jack Frost and the pocketbook align and on a day when I have Coke in the house, he paints the windshield with ice. This actually looks worse than it was. It was a quick pass with the scraper and off to work I went.

I have selzter in the house. Wonder if it's the Coke or the fizz that does the trick? Hmmmmm. Experiments in the name of science!

Beverage:  Rooibos tea
