You Know It's Cold When.....

In the little office building behind our house, we have a little refrigerator that we keep stocked with soft drinks, water (and the occasional adult beverage) so that we won't have to keep running back and forth to the house when we're working (or escaping). It does a great job of keeping things very cold, which is great in the summer.

Unfortunately, when it turned winter, I forgot to adjust the temperature settings, and at night everything gets doubly cold. I opened up the refrigerator to grab a Dr. Pepper -- and discovered that they had gotten so cold that a few of them had exploded. In between wipes of the spilled soft drinks, I was chucking cans out into the snow; here are two of the victims (or is it culprits??). I didn't realize soft drinks could even explode -- even after 37 years, I'm still learning new things every day!

Oh, my. My favorite diet drink frozen. Did you try it that way?

Hey, I'm a LOT older than you and I am STILL learning new things every day (or at least I try)! Keep learning every day - even if it's something simple like an exploding softdrink! For me, it's learning new words, their origins, their meanings - like "lindabrides" - that's my word for today! I'm trying to discover it's origins (the meaning I know!! "mistress" - and no, I don't have one!) but it's an ancient word and not one you can use in everyday language! Keep on learning and discovering!

I like this photo! I like that the cans are upside down!
