Caffeinated Randomness: Snapple Facts

I cannot tell you how glad I am today is Friday!


This week has not only been long... but rough.

But, today is the last day of the week and I am glad to see it end!  WHOO-WHOO!

So, since I've given up desserts and alcohol for Lent (Praise the Lord, so far, so good... this is only possible by the strength of God), I have been enjoying a few Diet Snapple drinks as a substitute.  My Snapple drinks always have a fun and silly fact on the inside of the cap, but I thought the fact from yesterday afternoon was worth sharing.

"Real Fact" #908
In, Athens, Greece, a driver's license can be taken away by law if the driver is deemed with "unbathed" or "poorly dressed."
