European Water Torture

Sunday, July 22, 2007

Oh Europe, why must you torment me with your 'agua con gas', 'wasser mit gas' and so very incorrectly labeled 'natural mineral water'?  Are you totally unaware that drinking sparkling water tastes akin to licking a rock?  You certainly got the last laugh when I thought I could shake all of the carbonation out of that bottle of 'l'eau toujours' and was unpleasantly surprised to find that at the end of my efforts it still tasted like crap.  But, perhaps the cruelest trick of all came with that deceptively labeled bottle of very lightly carbonated water that would have been more aptly named crappy water lite.  Of course, there is plenty of still water over here - it's all falling from the sky everywhere we go.  I haven't caught a lot of the news lately, did Noah announce that he's got another ark in the works?
Let's cut a deal, Europe - I'll turn an anosmic nostril on the whole EuroFunk thing and you provide me a bottle of potable water.

    gas sucks, unless it's coming out of me... then it feels pretty good. I actually forgot about that little un-pleasantry. Now I distinctly remember asking, "water's great right out of the mountain creek, why do you guys keep insisting on fucking it up?" I also learned how to say, "no gas" in every language - or would revert to charades if I had to.
