Tomorrow Hendricks Explode



Yep. We saw the diet cokes explode immediately when Mentos were dropped inside of them on David Letterman. It was quite moving. My first thought was...I'm thirsty. Then I immediately thought no one should be allowed to have four little boys at their house and NOT blow up coke in their back yard.

So, tomorrow morning (Saturday, July 1) at 10:30 a.m. (no early birds) we will explode several 2 liters of Diet Coke by sticking Mentos in them.

We'll scream. We'll yell. We'll video the explosion and our four boys taking a Diet Coke Shower.

You are invited to watch us blow up stuff! Bring your own chairs and umbrellas.

What fun! Come through the back gate. No one is allowed in my house that early on Saturday morning because unfortunately, Saturday morning comes right after Friday night movie, popcorn and glow stick night at the Hendrick house. It gets pretty messy around here.

Click here for what we have in mind. Don't worry. We won't let our sons say, "crap." At least not until they are older.

Sounds like fun for the boys! Check out this link of a music video you guys could make when Aaron gets really good at it: http://eepybird.com/

I heard about it on NPR a few weeks ago and had to watch the said video online. Its a doozy!

Wish I could be there for the coke shower, but alas though I can make many laugh from miles away, my powers are a bit limited. So, drop some mentos for me, and let us knwo how is goes... and for the record, "crap" is going to be Tanner's first word.

Also, I have mixed feelings about being a "HOT topic" at the pool today. And so I am not misrepresented, I would like to point out that my comments were more retro-80s directed than they were "leggings" specific. It may seem like a small detail, but is actually an important distinction.

Miss ya'll... talk to you soon.

Let me paint a picture...

I am at home, sitting while the kids sleep...

Heather is at Kroger...

Inspired, I call her to bring home 2 2-leters of Diet Coke and a roll of mentos. Heather asking why?... what for... what is this about, etc.. I simply said it was a little experiment and her reply was...

"I am not sure I can delve into my grocery money for an Aaron Hendrick stunt..."

or something to that effect... Just so that you know, your reputation precedes you and I am happily scarred for life!

Mark and I watched this on Letterman last night too! You HAVE to video this adventure and put it on your blog!

Judy said...

Bill....you let us know how it goes too! And tell Heather I miss her. :)

Judy, look at us. I just dropped you off and yet we meet again in blog world. Your posting right as I type! Could life get any sweeter than this??

This is a little disturbing to me. I would hate to have been the one eating a mentos while drinking diet coke and having your mouth explode to discover this for the very first time. I just picture a guy in a movie theater spewing coke all over the place. I do wonder.....does it have to be diet coke or can it be the real deal? Maybe you can include that one in your experiment tomorrow!

Love U! Can't wait to hear about the results.

p.s. I think it is funny that Bill is still posting about 'retro-80s' fashion on other topics. This one must have really got to him!

Charlie has been talking about this little episode for several weeks b/c he received the video clip of this in an email...we, too, saw it a couple nights ago on David Letterman, also...he really just thinks it's the coolest thing....I'm still not all that convinced, but we will be there b/c my husband is fascinated by this diet coke and mentos thing...and then, of course, is obsessed with your four boys, his "best friends"...so, you can count us in!-Kirby
