So this morning I woke up with lack of water hangover. Yes, I know it is called dehydration. I am already well into the remedy. It often surprises me when people tell me they do not drink water. At all. Oh the horror. In the most general sweeping sense, water is so good for your inside and your outside. Technically, it
- Transports nutrients and oxygen into cells
- Moisturizes the air in lungs
- Helps with metabolism
- Protects our vital organs
- Helps our organs to absorb nutrients better
- Regulates body temperature
- Protect and moisturizes our joints
I actually carry a fabulous 24 oz BPA free plastic tumbler with lid and straw with me about 90% of the time. In fact, one day I forgot it and a friend from work, Flam (short for Flambongo) is amused when I say, "Well, &$%#, I forgot my cup!" Her response, "You can use Styrofoam cups you know." Styrofoam. Ick. So clearly the container is nearly as relevant as the contents. Drinking water is as critical as eating to me. So you can imagine how comical this scenario was:
Playing around our pool one afternoon with some friends, I am retrieving bottles of water from the cooler and offer one to our neighbor. He laughs and says, "No thank you, I have my water right here" as he lifts he barley and hops refreshment. Oh, I know beer is comprised primarily of water. And our neighbor asserts in a completely serious tone beer is almost identical to water. Really? I believe it. Except for all the ways in which is is not at all like water. If it were identical, drinking too much beer would not cause you to:
Get plump. And not in a sexy kittenish plump lip kind of way.
Yell hideous phrases like "FREE BIRD".
Take a picture of your junk or the junk in your trunk and keep it in your cell phone.
Have a fabulous weekend and water up.
