Tap Water Has Never Tasted Better

My sweet, dearly departed grandmother Colleen and I had many things in commons: a love for gossip magazines (she called them “the trash”), the TV show “Perfect Strangers,” and mall Chinese food, for example. We also shared the habit of not drinking enough water. In fact, my grandma used to wrinkle her nose at the thought of drinking a glass of water and would say, “Yuck! It has no taste.” She, like me, preferred Diet Coke. I’m going on and on here, but my point is this — neither one of us hydrated/hydrates enough. She’s gone to heaven now (where I bet the water tastes like Diet Coke!), but I’m still here on earth and vowing to drink more of the clear stuff. One thing that’s sure to help is my new Bobble water bottle, with its built-in filter. I can fill it up from any ol’ faucet and the filter will work it’s magic to remove all the often harmful nastiness that makes most tap water takes like crap. Now I will have no excuse for not drinking it, at least until I get to heaven. [$9.99, Target]
