So, after getting my "personal refreshments" ready to go last night I arrived at work with a bag full of Coke (rather than a couple of bottles full of Coke). It obviously wasn't as flat as I thought it had been, and had exploded from the small disposable bottles I'd so carefully decanted it into.
My workmate totally misjudged my arrival at work with a bottle of Coke as terrible breakfast nutrition. Luckily, he asked so I could explain why I'd arrived to work at 8am with a bottle of Coke at the ready!
I hope my drink bottles are the only thing that fall apart over the next couple of days.
