My mum and dad were conscientious parents, who cared about our bones and skin and teeth. I swear. But I can never remember their saying, "Don't forget to drink lots of water...."
Water just isn't tasty to me. My kids, my friends, my grandchildren, my doctor---they all drink water as if it were the most natural thing imaginable. All my grandchildren have water bottles of various sizes and colours and don't leave home without them.
I too have a water bottle, although I would be hard-pressed to remember the last time I spontaneously picked it up. I have lovely glasses, some of which I bought especially to entice me to seek water at regular intervals. I have good intentions.
Is it a generational thing? A geographical one? Am I wired counteraquatically?
