when i was a freshman at chico state i took a communications class where i had to give an informative speech on any topic of choice. i chose water. i found out tons of cool facts on why you should drink water and LOTS of it!!! i used to get horrible headaches, but rarely get them anymore. anyway, you can google all of the facts for yourself. not only did i convince my class to drink more water (2-3 liters a day! depending on your weight: 160 lb. person=2.5 liters abt.), but i became a water junky. if you spend any time with me at all you'll notice that i rarely go anywhere without a bottle of water. poor sean is such a good sport b/c at the end of the day all of my bottles need to be refilled. yes, i know i am not supposed to be reusing the bottles, but i do and it's better to refill and drink than not drink at all. i do get new ones every month for those of you that are worried. the Dansani bottle is named "gigantor" b/c it is 1.5 liters and looks HUMONGOUS, the hospital cup is "mug" (yes, it's the free one from the hospital when i had brennan and all of sean's old people patients have them), and the kirkland one is named "kirkland" of coarse:-) drink up people!
