  1. I had never seen the inside of the company. People sure were thinner back then, yet they're all drinking Coke. I remember at least one of my teachers holding a Kleenex around her Coke bottles to keep her hands from getting cold, I assumed. If you had Raynaud's Disease (as I do now), maybe it helped.
