I pretty much only drink water - I prefer to eat my calories.

t'was a fiercely rural part of ireland, don't ya know.

today, home systems use everything from uv light to ozone to chlorine systems (but then what's the point if you're making your own pool water?).

in bermuda the roofs are painted white with lime for water collection. apparently, if you drink a lot of limey water, you think it's ok to wear shorts with a suit jacket and knee high dress socks...

oh, and thanks for the tip on the snapple. i'm not big on imitation(?) fruit flavors in tea, but i'll give it a shot. ya never know.
The bermuda short shot cracked me up...sitting here laughing out loud..no one home, just me, cackling like a loon

I always have at least 2 Propel bottles with filtered tap water in the fridge, along with a pitcher of filtered tap water which I normally use to make coffee of fill the cat fountain,



a full Brita pitcher, and several bottles of Propel in different flavors. Any of those will quench my thirst, but I usually just grab one of the water-filled Propel bottles.

Milk actually quenches thirst better than water, especially after a workout!

But for an everyday type of thing...I pick: water, ice tea
