Stupid.

So. Vancouver’s been under a water advisory. So we haven’t been drinking the water. (We can if we boil it, but it’s a bit yucky.)
Knowing there would be none at my local corner store, I worried not. I was thirsty tonight, and  went out looking for tonic water. Hell, I thought, I can drink tonic water with lemon, and that’s healthy, right? So I bought a litre, and thought I’d have a quiet, early night.
Not. Note to self: Tonic water contains a lot of sugar.  I am squeetering high on sugar.

I hope the crash comes soon. I need to go to sleep.

    Yeah, I’ve done that before…tonic is just like soda, right? Whatya mean it’s sugar-laden?

    Speaking of turbidity related stupidity(hey, that rhymed), since the boil-water advisory, and after boiling tap-water and purchasing bottled water and all the recommended stuff, I have absent-mindedly brushed my teeth with tap-water AT LEAST 3 or 4 times. No emergency-related scampers to the toilet YET.

    It said WATER right on the bottle, how could it be full of sugar?

    I took a chance and brushed my teeth with tap water from the start, because a) I am foolhardy and b) I was pretty sure they were going overboard on how dangerous the water was (See point a), although I was careful not to swallow any unboiled). I have been boiling the drinking water and turning it into tea, because drinking cold tea is preferable to tasting the particulates. Hey, how come that never makes it as a flavour? Can we market this stuff as Particulate-Flavoured?
