Just Typing This Made Me Have to Go!

My dear sweet bloggy friend Lidna over at 2nd Cup of Coffee has become a heavy drinker. Of water, that is. And she's trying to get everyone else to join her. It wasn't enough that a whole slew of folks did Phase 1 of her 30 x 5 Challenge, which involved increased activity. She had to ratchet it up a notch with Phase 2 and increase the torture exclude 100 calories from her day. Of course, she started this two days after Easter. They must not have chocolate Easter eggs in Indiana.

Now just like the moon, she's going through another phase. Phase 3 involves water, water, everywhere, as much as you can drink. She read somewhere that the number of ounces of water you drink each day should be be the same number as half your weight. That seems just a wee bit much to me.

If you manage to do it, just don't go to a Mets game. Or else you might find yourself behind this woman and have to wait a l-o-n-g time for your turn.

And just in case the booming metropolis of Muncie runs out of bottled water for Lid, I'm happy to reassure her that NASA has her back.

Water is H20, hydrogen two parts, oxygen one,
but there is also a third thing that makes water
and nobody knows what that is.
- D. H. Lawrence (1885-1930), Pansies, 1929

Well, Mr. Lawrence., I guess now they do.

Mocha, anyone?

"People have probably been getting their hands stuck in toilets as long as there have been toilets." Really. I've been on the planet 46 years and have never done this nor has anyone I've ever known. Maybe it's a regional thing?

Also, before he retired, my FIL worked for the city water company, so I already knew about this recycling. But I don't just drink former pee water; I drink BOTTLED former pee water, which is waaaay superior. Actually, after reading this, I realize that even rain water wouldn't be urine-free now. Thanks for the great early-morning, before the first bottle post. UGH

Actually, after about a week of drinking that much water, your body gets used to it and you're not in the bathroom 40 times a day anymore. Trust a serial dieter, I know!
