Yay! I'm the #1 comment-er today!!!! It must be my lucky day!

Why didn't you call it your mugger of Pepsi? :P

Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness said...

That is why you fill it half with whiskey. That will show them all to keep their meathooks off.

TS Hendrik said...

That's a good way to watch your calories. lol

Mary said...

My drinks have a 24hr life span...then the hubby claims it :o)

Gigi said...

start putting something nasty in your mug. that'll teach 'em!

The Invisible Seductress said...

See what you do is take a bottle prune juice empty it (no one drinks that crap) and fill i with soda. Kids will actually run away from the bottle if you offer it to them.

Everyday Goddess said...

That's like planting a vegetable garden, it's always the unintended ones who actually get to eat anything.

What if you switch to Coke?

Beth Zimmerman said...

My Coke Zero comes straight out of the can, or bottle, and I get it all to myself!

Watery Tart said...

I'll tell you MY solution (though I do it to my Diet Coke: ADD RUM. Then the kids cough and call you names, but take no more sips, and you've invested enough in it via alcohol that you will no longer forget about it.

HA! see a whiskey recommendation. Now you KNOW we're right!

Sam Liu said...

Great graph! I'm the same, I always forget my glass of pepsi, return to it hours later and foolishly take a sip to see if it's still drinkable. It never is. Will I ever learn? :D

Hope Chella said...

I hate when that happens to soda. Although, since I am a DC drinker, it's more like flat aspartame!!!! :)

Melinda said...

I suck my mountain dew down so fast there isn't any time for anyone else to drink any. I love that mountain dew.

Jason, as himself said...

Then you must chug it all, quickly, in the bathroom.

GrammyMouseTails said...

I have lost my taste for colas... but you did not graph which part turns into gas aka bbbrraapp!!

Tgoette said...

LOL! I used to have that problem until I started loading my cans with dish soap, hot pepper sauce and salt. It made them stop and ask, "How thirsty am I?"

Lady Hill said...

this is fabulous. I am drinking a mug of diet pepsi right now.

Pepsi at my home is hidden in the Secret compartment of the Secret room. Though, it was no longer a secret when everyone at my home realized I hid it in the Refrigerator.
Its a waste of the divine soda ever time this happens.

mintifresh said...

Looks like a pretty accurate graph for most people. I, however, drink my Diet Coke so fast, no one has a chance to sip at it.

Pat Tillett said...

They always have to drink out of my can, but when they open one of their own, they only drink half of it! What's up with that?

tammy said...

I'd say you have a drinking problem.

Marnie said...

Tell them you back-washed after they take a sip...that will teach em!

You know you take your beverage seriously when you make a pie graph! I love it :0)

Tortuga said...

Wow, I could use that graph to illustrate the demise of my Hubby's drinks too!

T said...

I'm pretty sure the last third of any drink is backwash - good call on tossing it, especially since yours is apparently family backwash. Eewwww, I just grossed myself out.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

So if you eliminated family members, you'd get more Pepsi, correct?

Pat said...

Well, I'm not real good at math, but if I picture that to be a pizza then you're not getting a fair share and YOU PAID for it!

If you drink your Pepsi from a cup, I would lick the cup all the way around the rim. Make sure all families members are in attendance while doing this.

If you drink from a can, SPIT in the can. I guarantee NOBODY will drink it. In fact, I just threw up in my mouth a little just thinking about it. But it shouldn't bother you because it's YOUR spit and it's already IN your mouth, right?

Gosh, I may be blond (bottled, but still) I have the solutions to your problems!

Pat said...

Make sure all FAMILY members are in attendance while doing this.

I hate typing errors. :)

Jillybean said...

With me it's Diet Dr. Pepper, and my family knows that they aren't allowed to touch it. Actually, the kids know that mom is just happier when I have my DDP, not that I'm grouchy without it or anything.....

(plus, the LAST thing my kids need is caffeine......)

Lene said...

My graph would be similar except combine the blue and green and part of the red for the amount child #5 consumes. I have thought of giving up soda to save his life, but I just can't bring myself to do that!

MiMi said...

Ha! That's awesome!

Cherie said...

I didn't know that sharing was possible!
I have stopped drinking soda now but when I did (I was a Coke-a-holic) everyone knew they better not touch Mom's soda! :D

Lindzena said...

That's because it's Pepsi. Pepsi is evil. Cherry Coke, on the other hand, is the true and divine nectar of the Gods.

I hope this comment effectively calls you to repentance. :)

In the mean time, I will make sure to enjoy my soda before I have a husband or children to steal it from me. Thanks for the warning!

Anything Fits A Naked Man said...

Actually, MY pie chart would be ALL red!! I'm constantly leaving the damn glass and walking off! At least yours gets shared!! LOL!

lisleman said...

you need to add a portion for spillage
- or maybe your family is more careful than mine.

jayayceeblog said...

Are you sure you're not a science or math teacher? Your graph is lovely and professional!!!

Dolly said...

Funny-that's exactly what happens to my Dr. Pepper! I bet my graph would look very similar:)

Teachinfourth said...

If you had a Dr. Pepper, I think you'd drink more of it…not only is it medicinal, but it tastes a heck of a lot better.

You're welcome, in advance.

RawknRobynsGoneBlogWild said...

Go for the sure fire method: a feeding tube. Works every time.

blueviolet said...

You need to put an additive in there to make it taste horrendous. It'll be the last community drink they take.

Queenie Jeannie said...

LOL!

But ewwww on the Pepsi! Coke is where it's at!!!

Adoption of Jane said...

HAHAHAHAHA!!!

Ms Bibi said...

I don't share my Pepsi. My boys are taking a risk of losing an arm if they touch mommy's drink,lol.

Writing Without Periods! said...

Are we drinking the same Pepsi? Just replace wife with husband and children with dog and cat. Thanks for the laugh.
Mary

Connie said...

Usually, after my grandkids take sips of my drink, I'm done with it! Don't like the floaties!

Diane J. said...

Funny, I always remembered Pepsi tasting like sugar water with some nasty flavoring and not much carbonation to begin with.

I was so proud that my kids all loved Coke. But, alas, we had to go and have twins. One likes chocolate (like my husband), the other vanilla (like me). One likes dogs (like me), the other cats (like hubs and me). One likes Coke (like me, hubs, other kids), the other Pepsi (like...no one else in this house). Where the heck did the Pepsi gene come from?

Diane J. said...

Umm, you know I'm just giving you a hard time, right? I was a little snarky.

Love the graph, definitely explains what happens to a lot of food and drink in my house. Although, if it's water add a section for the cats. If it's beer, delete children and one cat.

C'est La Vie said...

hahaha looks about right to me...

i'm passing an award on over to ya, do what you will with it :)

it'll be up in a bit, i'm still finishing the post

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

I have a problem with mine ending up a sugar mess as well. Except no one drinks mine, I just forget it.

M-Cat said...

Clearly, I should give you a tutorial on how to drink your brown bubbly so that your pie chart is completely the green color! : )

Barbra Stephens said...

LOL. My dad had a special mug of pepsi, too. My little sister used to massage his arms until he fell asleep and then we would wiggle it out of his hand.
Sneeky.....

Barbra Stephens said...

Pepsi deserves a pie chart!
It's pie chart worthy!

lori said...

That last one is what the hubby does all the time. Full, old cans of coke all over the place. Or glasses of milk. Drives me nuts.

Marla said...

You did not make a graph, you blogging nerd!

DEZMOND said...

thumbs up for being a PEPSI man instead of a COCA COLA one ;)
