a coke by any other name…
tonight is the night. TONIGHT is THE NIGHT. which would explain why i was awake all night last night. awake with my head spinning… filled with a thousand thoughts…big and small (mostly small…i’m a simple girl). awake worried. awake excited. awake nervous. awake. awake. awake.
and awake realizing that we have not extended our huge SINCERE apology to y’all. so here it goes…
we are sorry. we are madly, deeply, sincerely sorry for something that you will witness in tonight’s episode on HGTV.
we. were. forced. against our will to use the word….cola. that’s right. there i said it. southerners everywhere may revolt and not claim us but trust me when i tell ya….it took no less than 27 takes before we could actually say it without stuttering. (in fact, my lips get numb just thinking about it)
because down here…as it is in most parts of the south, any cold bubbly beverage (barring the alcoholic celebratory kind) is referred to as a COKE. doesn’t matter if it’s a pepsi…or something generic…or even a dr.pepper…we call ‘em all COKE. except of course, the amazing and wonderful BIG RED. and that one, my friends, deserves it’s own category.
but i digress…yes, we say the word cola. yes, we were violently forced. but the show must go on.
that’s it y’all…just had to confess my sins before the NATION sees ‘em. please forgive us. and please watch us at 7pm PST/EST & 6pm CST on HGTV. that is all. :)
