One of my favorite things to do when I'm not out riding my bike is make a trip to Mecca for an ultra cheap Coke. I stop by for a ice cold refreshing beverage a couple of times a week and usually take at least one member of the family. It's become a father and kid bonding event all for the low low price of 50 cents. Well, the other day as we approached our favorite Coke machines I saw a sign that rocked my world.
That's right, the price of a Coke is going up from .25 to .40. For those of you scoring at home that's a 60% increase. Could this be an early indicator of run away inflation? Probably not but gone are the days of searching through the car or couch for a simple quarter. Now I've got to also look for a dime and a nickel in addition to the quarter. What's the world coming to? Well, the price change doesn't take effect until Monday so you can bet I'm planning on making a couple of last minute trips to Mecca this weekend.
Oh the humanity!
