If you live in the United States, you may have heard that the Atlanta Falcons won their last football game and are heading to the Super Bowl. I live in Atlanta, so we're all pretty excited about this.
My son, Bubba, who is an avid football player and fan, was probably more excited than anyone else in my family. He had to have a celebration. This involved a bottle of Coke.
I walked into the kitchen and saw the boy vigorously shaking a single-serve bottle of the carbonated beverage. "What are you doing?" I asked. "You're going to make it explode!"
He grinned. "That's the point! There aren't any bottles of champagne around here, so Coke is the next best thing!"
I rolled my eyes. "If you're going to open it, please do it over the sink!"
He complied. Ten seconds later, and explosive spray of soda came out of that bottle.
(Fortunately, the cleanup wasn't too bad. It could've been worse. He could've added Mentos!)
