waterThis is a mini-confessional, but it’s a whopper and one I fully expect to hear about for years, so it gets its own post.

When I have to drink a lot water, and we all should, quite frequently, I do something odd: I pretend. I don’t just pretend that I have to drink water or I’ll die (duh!). No…

It’s more complex than that.

I close my eyes…

lift the bottle…

and as I tip it and hear it glug glug glug towards my throat…

I pretend I’m a human water cooler.

I can drink a full-sized bottle of water in about 15 seconds or less in this fashion. For someone who isn’t a water drinker, this has been the best possible use of my imagination.

What? Water is good for you. And so is playing pretend.
