The Historical Present demystifies all the various kinds of low-calorie coke products. Except for diet coke, all these products have been released during the time I've been in Uganda, and I hadn't heard of any of them, so I was especially mystified by the necessity for so many variations. How in the world would consumers choose between all of these, with such slight product differentiation? Come on people, its brown chemical water - can't we just pick one and go?
In unrelated news, I am feeling substantially better than I did last week, as I updated in the comments for the previous entry. Thanks for everybody's concern!
And a final non sequitur: the 'w' key on my new laptop is being fidgety (it needs extra pressure to work), if anybody knows of a simple way i can fix this myself without destroying my laptop, please let me know. (Otherwise i'm just going to deal with it until I get home to toronto, where reliable computer-repair-people are more widely available.)
