    I came home today and said, "ok, i just bought you 150 bottles of powerade, that should last you a few months." he says, "WHAT, how much did you spend on them?" I said, "don't you worry, they are all in the trunk, it's your job to carry them in the basement and stack them up."

    I found the 32 oz bottles of Poweraid for a quarter piece. 150 bottles and that's only $37.50, dirt cheap. I bought every last one of them, they were reduced down, and don't expire until Nov 2007. I felt very funny though, like people were staring at me as i loaded them up into the cart. :hammerhead:

    I told him now he better be ready for the season to start, now that i got him some drinks. With a week of 60 degree temperatures coming up, the season is really close.

    Who's ready, or who is wishing it is still winter?

    I wish I could find a deal like that. I normally just drink water and take salt tablets while I am working, but for that price I don't see how anyone could pass that up. Unless of course, you don't like that flavor... haha

    I am seriously addicted to that stuff. If I saw a deal like that I'd be breaking out the credit card and getting shaky with anticipation.

    Maybe I should start a support group. :help:

    How is that stuff? It's the sugar content I don't like with the Ade drinks.
