When MyCokeRewards was a bigger deal, back when my brother and I were like 10 and 13, we used to wait until 9 or 10pm on summer nights and then head out to local baseball fields in search of Coke bottle caps. He’d ride his bike and I obviously drove my chair, and as we cruised down the dark, peaceful streets of our neighborhood, we’d plan out all the prizes we were going to someday reap from collecting these bottle codes. At the baseball fields, which were deserted after dark, Andrew and I searched through every garbage can we could find. Many nights, we came home completely covered in ketchup, burger grease, cheese, etc. but we also brought home about 100 bottle caps per night. After a month or so of this foraging, we gave up and redeemed our points for a shitty carnival game for the Wii. It was the best prize I’ve ever gotten.
