Do you aspire to drink MT Dew or Settle for Brisk?

This is my vending machine story šŸ™‚

So I decided I needed a MT Dew tonight (it is my guilty pleasure and I love the stuff) and headed down to the vending machine by the hot tub. I took 8 quarters just in case it cost $1.75 instead of $1.50. I entered into the hot tub area and it was pitch black. I couldn’t see the buttons but I thought I saw the one that said MT Dew. I proceeded to put my 6 quarters in the machine and (it only cost $1.50) out popped my drink.


The disappointment and disbelieve as I was heading out was a bit much. All I wanted to do tonight was enjoy a refreshing MT Dew and chill. So I started heading back to the house and I realized I had a dollar in my pocket. I thought for a moment let’s just go home and forget it. But then I realized hey I WANT A MT DEW!

So I turned around and went back. I walked in there took a look at the machine in the dark looking for the MT Dew button. Still pitch dark I thought I figured out all the buttons but 1. This particular button had no label. WHAT???

I calculated the risk in my head, $1.50 for satisfaction or go home with that money disappointed. So I went for it!!!

Yes I am now enjoying my MT Dew šŸ™‚

The moral of the story for me,

Don’t give up!

Don’t settle!

Don’t let other people tell you what you can and can’t do!

Trust your heart, trust your gut and trust your TASTE BUDS

Here’s to a kick butt 2010, GO FOR IT!!!
