I Know This Dream, It Might Be Crazy

But It's The Only One I've Got.

11 July 1985
In 1985, the soft drink world was in turmoil. Coca Cola had changed their reliable and long standing Coke product with a soda called “New Coke.” The world was up in arms due to the new product with its less than adequate taste and flavor and on July 11, 1985, Coke executives finally threw in the towel and reverted to their old product. This same day, I was born. Although, this win in the soda world was a triumph for the people, I can’t help but think that this incident foreshadowed much of what was to come in my life: a life of unreliability, dissatisfaction, disappointment, some triumphs, and soda companies changing their products right before my very eyes. And this is just the beginning of my life story...
