Long story short: I’m forgetfull, I procrastinate, and my house is by far not the cleanest on the block…
About 3 weeks ago I went hiking, the same way I do pretty much every weekend. I happened to have a few Pepsi Ones and some Gatoraide in the fridge so I threw one of each in a small cooler with some ice as a special cool beverage treat at the end of the trail. Yes, Mom, I did also take my camelback with plenty of water.
I finished my hike and passed on the Pepsi, chugging the Gatoraid instead. Fast forward to 5 minutes ago, when I re-discovered the cooler that had been hiding right where I left it under a chair in my living room, complete with can of soda and what I thought was melted ice water in it.
I opened the cooler and found that it is full of about 2 inches of watery warm soda, so I figured the can must’ve popped a hole or something. I dumped out the muck and pulled out the empty can for recycling only to find that in all outward appearances, the can is still completely intact, and still has some fluid rattling around in it. I washed it and inspected it and, I swear to Og, there is no sign of how the soda escaped the can, and no sign that the small amount still inside has any way out.
So…what the heck happened to this can of soda?
