I'm Full

I had this conversation with an acquaintance at a party on New Year's. So this has been stuck in my head for a while.

I was at my friend's house for a New Year's party. I poured myself a beverage (I'm sure it had alcohol, but I can't remember what it was!) and asked the lady standing next to me if she wanted something.

Me: Would you like a drink?

Her: No, I'm full.

Me: (blank stare)

Her: Well I was tired earlier and I knew that I was going to stay up late tonight at the party so I had a diet coke.

Me: (Still staring. Please tell me there is more to this story than a diet coke).

Her: Well I drank the whole can of diet coke and now I'm full. (She rubs her stomach and makes a pouty face.)

Me: I know what you mean. I had a diet coke yesterday and I still feel like I'm going to explode. What do they put in those things anyway? I don't think I can eat another thing until next Tuesday! (Ok, so maybe I didn't say that. Maybe I just gave another blank stare in response.)

Some people are so strange...but hey it gives us 'normal' people something to blog about and invoke laughter :)

I can definitely say that I have never been full without eating a lot of food. Really fattening, yummy food. But full from a diet coke? Never. Interesting.

That sounds like someone who's just not healthy ... physically or mentallly. I wonder if she knows how bad Diet Coke is for her ;)

I had a friend like that, and she eventually got treatment for anorexia. I'd be staring, too.

I had a string bean last Friday and seriously, I can't even sit up I'm so full. WTF?

Cathy said...

Really? People get full off of Diet Coke? Loved your response!

That must be what I've been doing wrong...I drink Coke Zero, not Diet Coke.

OMG that made me LOL! Don't give that poor woman an altoid or she might hurl on you;)
Wow, who knew all this time I supposed to be drinking Dt. Coke instead of Dt.Pepsi. No wonder I'm always hungry.
LOVED your response!
