I was driving to work early one morning this week when I spotted three young housewife types (yes I know this is stereotyping – one could be a brain surgeon, the other a garbage collector, and the third a stock broker.)
So I’m thinking the world is full, that is chock full, of completely stupid people. These three women are going to walk maybe (and his is a stretch – 10 blocks). Do they think they will dehydrate and die in that 10 blocks without a bottle of water? This really shows the power of propaganda. They think their health will be ruined and they won’t be able to have those sextuplets unless they consume the bejesus out of the water.
This, of course, set me to reminiscing about my childhood and wondering how on earth we made it all the way to school AND back without a drop of water on us. No plastic bottles, no canteens. Why didn’t they find us shriveled up like sun dried raisins by the road side? How on earth did we survive drinking out of those fountains. I wonder if I can retroactively complain about the poor water service.
I really get a kick out of the new aerobics instructors with their hard won experience of sage advice. And it is something to behold to watch the big time body builders carry around a 2 gallon jug of water from weight machine to weight machine with a water fountain 10 steps away.
I love to watch people put a $1.50 into a machine to get water. These would probably be the people with credit card debt upto their ass.
This is making me thirsty – I’ve got to go get a bottle of water out of the vending machine.
