Guilty Pleasures

IT was hot yesterday- I was in a vault testing a backflow (I am a state certified "BAT"- Backflow Assembly Tester) Anyway I found myself at 7-11, and I yielded into this:
a Double Gulp of diet Dr. Pepper, You know I never hardly ever buy pop and never from 7-11; but it just sounded so good and cooling

So to cure my guilt, my Double Gulp container became this:

The lid will be thrown away, the straw will be reused, and the Double Gulp Container became a planter for impatiens
So how do you solve justify your guilty pleasures?

I sell beer for a living, so I mostly consume the can's innards to get my revenge on it.

LOL Red.

I applaud your re-use of the cup. But, doesn't it feel like it sits there taunting you for a weak moment every time you look at it?

Regarding the appeal of soda in the summer heat, I struggle with the same thing. My solution has been to make citrus seltzer. The recipe is easy and it even uses agave nectar!

Chile- No it dosen't taunt me- me not being a big soda person it looks like a Double gulp cup that someone has used as a planter. I will try your citrus seltzer. Agave nectar is so good to make things like that with.
