If my 3rd grade study of human physiology remains correct, the body is said to be 70% water.
I, however, drink more Diet Coke than probably any one you know. Not hyperbole this time, just the facts. DC definitely makes up 70% of my body.
Elixir sanctioned by my own great-grandma: "Better a small glass of Diet Coke than a harsh word to a loved one."
If you haven't heard, a giant water line broke here in Boston on Saturday night, so thirty-three communities are under a "boil water for safety" issue as the emergency water running through the faucets is pulling from lakes and reservoirs and hasn't been fully treated. Showering in the water is fine, but keep your mouth closed or suffer the consequences.
PEOPLE. I'VE BEEN TRAINING MY WHOLE LIFE FOR THIS EVENT.
Drinking 8 parts Coke to 1 part water has come in exceptionally handy the last few days. Because Target, and the grocery store, and the pharmacies may be out of bottle water... but boy howdy is there enough Coke to go around. Consider this my own little slice of heaven.
