      I wonder if I will get to the point where I like the taste of water.

      That sounds horrifying. You come home from a long walk in withering heat and crave... Diet Coke? At such times the taste of water should be like ambrosia.

      I drink water in the morning – and I like the taste of it.

      End good all good. This article actually made me want to drink a can of coke. Probably not the intended effect.

      Incredibly disturbing but also provides some interesting insight. Well worth the read!

      My mom got me into Diet Coke in highschool, it's so toxic but I definitely had a moment with it. Reading this I could viscerally recall the taste and experience of drinking one. eek. SO wild.
