Just What I Needed

Last night was The Girl's first dance recital ever. Before it started, I was exhausted and fading. And just when all hope was lost, a beacon of light came into view.


This is only the second Red Bull vending machine I have ever seen. It was like manna, and very much appreciated in that moment.

I hope you all are having great weekends, wherever you find yourselves.

*License: I took this picture.

Awww man would I like one of those on this side of the Pond. Or a Mountain Dew machine, either would suit me :)

Oh! A dance recital...(memories of when I had little girls...smiling) Now it's all gymnasiums and sweaty socks. lol.

I've never had a Red Bull! Really.

Scope said...

Please tell me it wasn't outside the grade school gym.

Juli said...

Ahh... the light beckons men like the blue glow of the bug zapper beckons mosquitoes. :)

Hey Joshua! I have never seen one of these either. To be honest, they're a "three hours driving and ready for my bed" desperation move for me, but I always quite like the taste; I wish they sold a zero caffeine one ;> Indigo

Haha, best be careful with that stuff though, else YOU might end up in the recital with your daughter. :) And I believe I'd pay good money to see that!

I've never had a Red Bull, or, for that matter, a Purple Cow...

Donna Hole said...

Hmm, I'm looking for a wine vending machine. I wonder if they have those in Vegas?

.......dhole

I can't believe the aura around that thing.

Cassie Mae said...

I'm distracted by all the Mountain Dew.

Samantha said...

That is one drink I've never tried...but I hear it gives you wings haha :)

Kato said...

Manna is very important...glad you were able to scavenge some :)

Mynx said...

Confess Red bull doesn't excite me, now if it was a chocolate vending machine..

Joshua said...

Lass - I didn't, but it's not because of the caffeine.

Jamie - I want one in my house. And someone else to pay to keep it stocked.

vic - Indeed.

Nadja - The recital was very nice, and much shorter than I expected.

Scope - No, it was in the student center of a technical college.

Juli - Yes. Zap.

Indigo - Now that would be an interesting choice. All the sugar, none of the caffeine. Hmm...you might be on to something there.

fishducky - It would certainly make a fishducky fly.

Donna - The airport?

azia - Spectacular, no?

Cassie - Of course you are.

Samantha - Try it with vodka.

Kato - It was much needed at that moment.

Mynx - It was on the other side of the soda machine.

Annika said...

What, a Red Bull vending machine? Now I'm jealous for real. You know, over here you have to be 18 or older to buy Red Bull or other energy drinks so there will be no such machines placed near me. Booo.

Joshua said...

Annika - I want one in my house.
