How to defeat your self imposed self control measures in 5 minutes.

Soda is bad for me.  I get it, I really do.  I should drink tea, or organic water or something instead.

So in order to make it more difficult for me to drink too much soda, I started keeping the soda in the cabinet, where it will stay nice and lukewarm and undrinkable.  I put one in the fridge every few days and that's it.  One cold soda.

Only then I really wanted a soda.  And they were all lukewarm.  Darn you yesterday Amy!  Stop being so damn smart and on top of things and manipulative! (Can you manipulate yourself?)  Sometimes I'm convinced that yesterday Amy is significantly smarter than today Amy, a scary trend, I admit.

Thanks to the internet, I found out you can chill a soda in 5 minutes.  Even I can wait five minutes...

Best Part?  Works with wine, too!!

The problem is I don't know if I should wallow in self defeat or congratulate my ingenuity... I'll worry about that later.  At the moment I'm busy trying to figure out how to outsmart Tomorrow Amy.

Also, in case you were wondering, Solution 2 is ice.
