As hard as this might be for some to read, I must post my break-up letter so that my dear knows I am serious this time. I would have tissue ready as this is a tear-jerker.
Dear Diet Coke,
I am sorry, but I think we can no longer see each other. I would like to say it isn’t you, but really, it kind of is. You’re just not good for me. I know we have had a wonderful relationship going back many decades, I know that I have tried to break up with you before, but this time, THIS TIME, I mean it…….really. I would love to say, “let’s be friends” but I just don’t think I have the strength for that. I will miss you. Your fizzy sweetness, your cool touch, your zero calorie yumminess, but I can’t live with the hurt you bring me. Please try to believe me that this is harder for me than it is for you, let’s face it, you have so many others that love you and I am stuck drinking non-caffeinated, non-carbonated, non-flavor water. Our relationship was fun while it lasted, but we both knew it wouldn’t last. Water might be “no fun” but it is concerned with helping me and making me feel better. You, you could care less if I am in pain, crabby, and addicted. Goodbye Diet Coke, we are no longer a couple.
Not Yours Truly,
