Coke by any other name...
This is a true story. I was shopping in one of our local stores when I realized I was thirsty. So, before checking out, I located one of those small "refrigerators" used to keep soda pop cold. I reached in, pulled out a bottle of Diet Coke.
To my astonishment, I saw it featured my last name. No, I don't think there was anything sinister or other worldly about this. It's probably a marketing gimmick. But, strangely, I've not seen any other Coke bottles with personal names on them.
Whatever, the bottle occupies a place of honor on my workbench in the garage.

What are the chances! I believe you Lowell, thousands wouldn't 😀

I've seen them with first names on them but, never with last names. That really is quite a coincidence. If that happened to me I'd have to keep the bottle too. However with my strange last name, if that happened to me it would truly be spooky.
It can also be used as a first name, so that doesn't surprise me. I've seen these before here.
I can imagine your surprise at that moment. That must have felt weird!
I've seen them with first names, and Anderson could be either.
Lowell, they just saw you coming and somehow new you were thirsty. What an unusual find. Perhaps this bottle is collectable? The glass ones use to be.
I've seen them here too but that is an unusual to find! They made it special for Anderson Cooper?
Well, if anyone deserves to have something named after them it is you!
I'll have a rum and anderson, thank you!
I've seen Coke in large bottles with personal names on the labels. I know a young man with the name Anderson, although it's unusual to be used as a first name. You'll never find a bottle of anything with my first name on it.... very unusual and I have never met another person with my name.
What a very cool surprise.
I don't drink Coke...or Anderson...so I wouldn't know a thing about this. I'd worry, though. Remember the movie "Truman?" Where Jim Carey lived in a whole world of his own, televised? You might want to go home and channel surf, Lowell. Who knows? You may be a favorite show on prime time with an episode on Lowell finding "Anderson" in a cooler.
Lowell,,, it's a low of 18degrees in the morning over here... Ocala is really looking good right about now! hahaha!
What a surprise ;)
Your bottle of coca cola personified 😉🙋
Purdy cool, I'd say!
Did Anderson quench Anderson's thirst for fame? :)
