    So here's something odd. I get home from band practice tonight and my dad is waiting. He hands me a list and says "Go to Wal*Mart. We need this stuff tonight." So I look the list over, and ask questions, but he gives me no good answers. So I shop, and return.

    Now, the background: I live with my dad. It's only the two of us here, and we have company maybe three times a month. And by company, I don't mean a group, I mean one, maybe two other people. My dad has never hosted a gathering at his house in my life. So why, exactly, did he INSIST that I buy these?

    Better rent a portapotty, STAT! Lines at your bathroom are going to be far too long.

    Unfortunately for WR, those aren't chocolate. Pineapple creme filling.

    But there's no upcoming party and no work parties he attends (especially none he'd buy thirty dollars worth of soda for).

    At least there are 8 Sams's Choice Ginger Ales. I enjoy the ginger ale.

    Also, to clarify, the stuff needed tonight was batteries, lightbulbs, stuff like that. This soda could have waited a day or two apparently, but I didn't want to hit Wal*Mart on a weekend.

    Was it on sale for a super cheap price? Before my grandma died, she would buy things by the pallet if they were super cheap.

    I LOVE SODA, but to me thats just overboard. I if he does none of what you say I woder what would compell him to ask you to get all of that.

    Your dad's name isn't "McGyver" is it? if so, I'd start running for the hills right now. There was one episode where Mcgyver was able to blow a hole in a sealed mine shaft with gingerale and batteries. God know what kind of mayhem the lightbulbs will cause. :bag:

  13. I don't see any Dr. Thunder in there. You CANNOT have a par-tay without a proper supply of Dr. Thunder.

    Perhaps he is going underground? Maybe he is giving up life on the surface to become king of the Mole People? The soda will serve as a wonderful distraction while he wrests the throne from the current leader? After that, a war of epic proportions with the CHUD. Just a thought.

    I concur. Dr. Thunder is probably the only 'fake' soda brand out there that's as good as the real thing.

    I'm going to have to disagree about Dr. Thunder being the only good one.

    This Sam's Choice Ginger Ale is awesome!

    Also, another interesting (or not) point:

    Why did I need to buy 4 bottles of Coca-Cola and 4 of the generic?

    Yes...why didn't you just ask your dad what the purpose of this stuff is? Or did you ask him but it just made for a better story if you pretended you had no idea what it's for?
