SuperSonicAddiction....The story of lemonlime gatorade!(9 posts)

SuperSonicAddiction....The story of lemonlime gatorade!JoeSlow
Sep 4, 2001 4:59 PM
Hello everyone! I am writing this story to make everyone aware of the effects of the dreaded LemonLime addiction. It started out as an average sunday afternoon at the grocery store. I was wandering aimlessly through the store lookking for some good grinds to stock the house up with. When suddenly something happend that would change my life forever. I was strolling down the coffee and tea isle stocking up on as much caffiene as possible when out of the corner of my eye I saw a bright green container. At first I thought nothing of it and tried to be on my way, little did I know that this was the beginning of the end for me. There must have been some kind of supersonic gravity force pulling me to this bright green object I couldnt stay away, I had to have it. I picked up the container and read the label...it was an innocent looking container of lemonlime gatorade powder..ready to make 10 gallons of tastey drinks for all my rides for the next month! and all for only 3 dollars and ninteynine cents! You are probably thinking what a score...you cant beat that! And under normal circumstances I would agree. But not today, I would later find out that this so called "sport drink" would soon take over my life...take over my thoughts and take over my whole existence! I couldnt wait to get home and mix up some LemonLime drinks! I was thinkin I could invite the neighbors over to have a few drinks....of lemonLime gatorade of course =) What a wonderful time we would have..sipping the "green juice" and telling cycling stories till we were blue in the face. what a splendid time. Once I got home I mixed up my first batch. I poured some into a glass to drink it and i took a sip. It was pure bliss. I couldnt get enough of it, I kept drinking and drinking till I was drunk from gatorade! I felt like I could rule the world! Before I knew it the "green juice" was all i could drink! I would make my coffee in the mornign with it. I would put it in my cereal as well...everyting is better with the "green juice" Before I knew it I was using it to brush my teeth and rinse the toothpaste out of my mouth!! Now no matter where I am all i can think of is gettin my hands on the "green juice"!!! I am even starting to turn a pretty hue of lemonlime!!!
So please heed my words!!
BEWARE OF THE "GREEN JUICE" IT IS EVIL! IT WILL TAKE OVER YOUR LIFE AS IT DID MINE!

Well anyways, I am going to hit myself in the head with a brick and goto bed now. I think i have wasted enough of everyones time. I hope you enjoyed my story.
what is everyone elses drink of choice?
I cant live without my "green juice"....can you?

have a good night

This is really weird that you brought this up.
Just today my wife and I had to have a talk with my kids about limiting their consumption of the stuff. They've given up things like chocolate milk and orange juice for Gatorade, which we also mix up ourselves.
I don't mind them drinking it after a workout, but they want it for breakfast, and in their school lunches! It can't be good for them to drink more than a glass or so each day. I'll bet Philip Morris is behind it!

Well that puts a whole new spin on things now!! I bet those lemonlime stickers will look very well with my lemonlime colored bike, jersey, socks, shoes, helmet and gloves!

Soylent green?!?! YOu mean to tell me that they make this stuff out of reconstituted cyclists?!?! Wow...if that doesnt make you ride faster I dont know what will!! =)
