Our secret for optimal hydration ...
Monday, March 11, 2013

The amount of water intake in our house has risen dramatically, and it's all because of the vessels we are drinking from.


It's called a Camelbak, and what makes it different is the odd nipple-like nozzle on the end. I really can't even call it "nipple-LIKE" -- it's a nipple, plain and simple. 'Took us awhile to figure out how to get water out of the thing, too. We tried pouring, squeezing, even sucking and were unsuccessful on all three tries. Then someone (my niece, I believe) told us that we had to bite on it and suck at the same time.

All I can say is that it's an odd, satisfying sensation. And the fact that we're drinking more water is probably due to the fact that it renders us babies again, suckling at our moms. Graphic and odd, I realize, but when my wife left hers in a hotel room and was without it for a few weeks her water intake dropped dramatically.

It is taking every ounce of self discipline I have not to fill it with gin.

I have a green one that seldom leaves my side when I'm at my computer.
Love it!

P.S.: Haven't tried gin in it . . . but now that you mention it? A little Merlot might do the trick. :)
