Today, I will explore the theory that John "tricked" me into marrying him by pretending to be something he is not. Let me explain. When I first got to know John, he was a Pepsi drinker. I, myself, am a Dr Pepper drinker. As we became friends and his pursuit of my heart began, he started laying aside the Pepsi and drinking Dr Pepper. Now I understand there may have been a lot of pressure on him in this area. After all, my brothers and I all drink Dr Pepper. Naturally, I began to think that John must be a sensible person to switch from Pepsi to Dr Pepper.I came across this photographic evidence of John with his new favorite soda, Dr Pepper, in hand. This picture was taken on the eve of our wedding.
I believe it was within our first year together that John started switching back to Pepsi. He claimed that Dr Pepper was giving him a "headache". Highly suspicious if you ask me. At this time, he will only drink Dr Pepper if he is desperate for a caffeine fix! A coincidence? I think NOT!
Exhibit B - The empty Pepsi carton
And so I must conclude that this man whom I married tricked me into believing he was a Dr Pepper drinker in order that my affections would more likely warm toward him. (I will admit that he was wise to use any asset available to win my heart.) In spite of this beverage betrayal, I still love him. And since there was no Dr Pepper/Pepsi clause in our marriage covenant, I will simply have to accept that he is (and probably always was) a Pepsi drinker. At least now he is open about his love for Pepsi.
The up side of this lamentable affair: There is more Dr Pepper for me!
P.S. I know that this will not be enough evidence for some of you. I will find more. Yes. I will find more.
