A little H-2-0

There is some debate over whether there is iodine in drinking water.  Some doctors recommend only drinking distilled water while on the low-iodine diet.  This is probably overkill, but I would rather be safe than sorry.  After a little research, Phil told me that a granulated activated carbon water filter (a Brita filter) would work for home, but I would still need the distilled stuff for work.  So Phil and I bought just a few gallons of distilled water to get me started.

We looked like survivalists.


Since I was now having to drinking special water from gallon containers, Phil recommended that I drink it directly out of the container.  Just like the frat-boy weight lifters.  He said I should slam back the water, let the water dribble down my chin, and then when I finish yell, "WOO!" while flexing.

I opted for a different drinking vessel.

{Now that's some pure lookin' water}

My favorite part about the water is that it has an expiration date.

Apparently after a couple of years on the shelf, the water needs to re-enter the hydrologic cycle.

Yeah I just nerded out there.

Since my stash of water is getting a little low, we went to Safeway to restock and found this:


Really?  REALLY?  There's been a big run on distilled water I guess.

This is why survivalists always have a back-up stash.
