Absence makes the taste buds grow fonder

The setting: The Sweet Tooth Cafe on Broadway Street in picturesque Skagway, Alaska

The need: Desire to break a $20 bill so I could properly tip the shuttle bus driver

The action: Purchasing a drink, to break the $20, to get the singles, to tip the driver

The discovery: That while it wasn't so perfect as to be a fountain soda, the good folk at the Sweet Tooth Cafe actually *did* have a Diet Dr. Pepper in the back that they were willing to pour over ice in a cup

The outcome: A glistening tear of happiness rolled down my cheek

I'm so happy for you. Did they go so far as to find you some RABBIT pellet ice too! That might have caused a total meltdown!

Hope you are enjoying your trip!

We bought a 15-gallon container today off Craigslist. It's just a typical blue plastic container but it had a DDP label on it. It once housed DDP concentrate and it still smells sweet. Now if only it were full, I'd send it your way :-)

Did you read about Sarah Palin's fave soft drink? Diet Dr. Pepper.
