Shelley sent me this email yesterday… I think she needs her own blog… she is very funny!
“Red Bull is expensive. I saw it at the gas station. Those cans are small and theyâ€™re on sale for $2.50. Now, Iâ€™ve never bought a Red Bull, nor have I ever tasted one, so I donâ€™t really know if thatâ€™s a good price or not. I do know that gas stations can be on the high side, but if itâ€™s advertised big in the front window, it must be a decent price. These energy drinks seem to be all the rage. It says that it â€œvitalizes body and mind.â€ I have to admit, I lean more toward the mind theory. Do you feel like running a marathon after youâ€™ve had a Red Bull? Allison says her teacher drinks them. Does it give you superhuman strength to handle 30 3rd graders? Iâ€™ve also seen energy drinks called Amp and Donkey Kick. Now, donkeys may have a lot of energy (although Iâ€™m not quite sure of this. I do know that they use donkeys at the Grand Canyon to carry all your stuff. I suppose they must be pretty strong.), but they arenâ€™t that smart. Amp reminds me of loud music, which also can give you that high energy feel. In high school, sleeping until noon, a thirstbuster of Diet Coke, high score on Pac Man, and big hair (thanks to a can of Aqua Net) gave me a burst of energy. After all that, I went out of the house feeling pretty good. I really never got into the Jolt thing. What happened to that? Not good enough anymore? Now thereâ€™s Starbucks with double shots and all these crazy energy things. I even saw energy Jelly Bellys at the store. Now, they were $3 for a pack of 5 individual servings. That may be more amps or watts for your money. I say, stick a light bulb in your ear. So, as I may submit once again, is this all in the mind of the drinker, or does it really stimulate your metabolism, improve reaction speed, and increase endurance? It may give a gym membership a run for its money. Thereâ€™s my thoughts on that. Just in case you were wondering.”
