My take-aways are twofold:
1. How terrible that a woman died of over-consumption of soda.
2. How terrible that my friends fear such a fate for me.
But, I can assure you that I will never, ever drink 2 gallons of Diet Coke. Well, unless I'm super stressed. Or tired. Or have a really hard day. Or just need a lot of Diet Coke.
But probably never.
