So it's not been a secret here that I suck at drinking water. I don't know why that is -- it clearly doesn't taste bad. In fact, most of the time, when served ice cold, I find it delicious and refreshing. And it inevitable makes me feel better.
But my body seems to crave Diet Pepsi and such like crazy. This is my own fault -- I put that shit into my body for a long time. Why not water?
I could argue this back and forth all day. You see where it's going.
Point is, I need to hydrate.
My skin and hair are suffering for it now. It's unpleasant. And tonight, the latest ickiness - bleeding gums. Make no mistake - I brush my teeth enough (if not more) and take pretty good care of my mouth. So I googled this-n-that and read in one place that a little bleeding in my gums could be a symptom of dehydration.
Well that's just swell.
Anyway, the last few days - and especially since I spent this past weekend in Arizona, driest state in all the land - I've been CHUGGING water. Seriously. I got up to pee last night like 4 times (didn't you wanna know that). I'm a veritable human fountain.
How long does it take to rehydrate yourself, I wonder. I'm sure it takes longer than the last few days. But I want pretty hair and moisturized skin now, pretty please.
In other, totally unrelated news, the T-Mobile commercial with Phil Jackson, Whoopi Goldberg and so on, continues to annoy me. Who made this commercial? It is trying to tell you this phone is customizable for the commoner... while billionaires pass it around, set to folk music. I are confused.
Good night, kittens. Must drink more water before crashing. I am SO tired.
