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.
