Self Portrait Day- Things that annoy me

The other day I was at physical therapy and there was this lovely girl that I was chatting with. At the end of her session she turned to me and told me she wasn't feeling well. She said she was dizzy and shakey. I asked her what she had eaten that day and she said "a bowl of cereal and some coffee". I asked "have you had any water today?" She said "no". "You're probably just dehydrated then" I said.
I asked her if she wanted me to get her a cup of water and she said that she wanted to wait and see what the physical therapist said. Like drinking a cup of water would have been a BAD IDEA at this point?!
Any way, my point is, it amazes me how seemingly intelligent people can go for hours and hours without drinking any water. They drink coffee, soda, alcohol, and consider them "liquids" and can't understand why they don't feel well.
Drink some fucking water people. AND, if you wait until you are thirsty, then you are already dehydrated.
I don't leave my apartment without water. Make fun of me all you want for carrying a water bottle with me everywhere. I might be a cranky bitch, but at least I'm not a thirsty bitch.

Drink some fucking water! Posted by Hello

I am so guilty of not drinking enough water. If I could mainline diet Coke directly into my veins, I would. I know I feel so much better when I am drinking water, so note to self - PUT DOWN THE DIET COKE AND BACK AWAY. :)

You are SO, SO right, Torrie. I wish I had listened to that advice a long time ago, because my Pepsi drinking is probably what led to kidney stones. I drink nothing but water and the occasional lemonade now. Also, iced tea is not good for you either. PEOPLE! DRINK MORE WATER. Forget Got Milk. Get Water!

Get Water, but don't over do it! I know someone who over-hydrated and had to spend time in the hospital. Something about electrolytes.

Here's the tag thing: 4 lines, the first and third are "Turd in a punch bowl;" the second and fourth must rhyme, and can be on any topic. Not SO bad, as tags go. Pass along to 3 unsuspecting punch drinkers.

Check out my blog to see my turd poetry.

You mean to tell me that drinking water is a good thing?

SHIT, I have been lied to by the cola companies all these years.

I drink tons of water too. Always have a bottle with me, and freak out if I'm leaving the house and cant find a bottle, because that means I have to stop at the store. In my school bags, bottles of water. I re-use the bottles often-after cleaning them of course. I can always tell, if I dont have water within an hour or two of waking up, I feel like shit. Drink a glass, its all good.

I also cant stand it when people say they drink enough liquids....Hello, McFly...caffinated liquid DEhydrates you. Your worse off for drinking those.

For some reason the picture of you with "Drink some fucking water!" underneath cracked me up.

I hear what you're saying. But I'm still gonna get a Diet Coke with lunch.
