2/15/08 - Gatorade, getting sick and toast

First off, I've been sick for basically the past week or so, which has left me to being able to keep down Gatorade and that's about it. My wonderful wife stopped at Harvest Foods on the way home from work the other day and found, believe it or not, my beloved Lemonade Gatorade. She got a half gallon container and three 32oz bottles. This was of course all they had on their shelves at the time and seeing as how it was packaged in their old labels, I can only assume that they had been sitting there for quite some time.

Now, on to some interesting news, I have consumed all of the Lemonade Gatorade and was needing some more gatorade in general so I headed down to the local gas station and what do I see...a new product, one that I had never seen before, but had heard about. It's called Gatorade Tiger. This particular flavor is called Cool Fusion. It was yellowish green in color and was next to lemon-lime so I just assumed that it was Lemon-Lime, only with Tiger Woods on the label. The first few drinks were not what I expected as it was not quite lemon-lime but very close. Now, I don't consider myself a very picky eater/drinker, but I was very pleased with myself when I actually read the rest of the label, and I quote, "One part mind. One part body. All parts cool. That's what it takes to come through in the clutch with millions watching. it's what makes tiger, tiger. cool fusion. flavored with one part key lime. one part lemonade. always cool. it's in tiger woods, is it in you? formulated for tiger woods"

Yes, you read that right, apparently, Tiger Woods and I have very similar tastes when it comes to Gatorade. And, I have to say, it's one of the better flavors I've ever had. I can't say that I like it more than Lemonade, but considering I can't find Lemonade anywhere, I might have to get used to Cool Fusion. And yes, Gatorade still has Lemonade as one of it's flavors on it's website, and I have seen it in a Walgreen's in Conway, in the new packaging, but only in 32oz bottles. I believe I mentioned it before that as quick as I can go through this stuff, I need it in the gallon jugs, and I would like to get it highly discounted.

After being sick all week, and coming back to work today, I was very excited to find out that our yearly raises and bonuses were being handed out. Now, I'm not going to retire on the raise and bonus, but it is definitely a large enough amount that we will be able to pay off our truck (which we were almost done with anyways) and be able to get the rest of Makenna's stuff without having to break the bank. This is of course what we will be doing this weekend, hopefully after Cristi gets off from working Saturday afternoon and before we head off to Conway to have dinner and watch a movie with some friends from Sunday School.
