I remember watching a Star Trek episode where an alien referred to humans as "ugly bags of mostly water." I beg to differ Mr. Alien ... humans are beautiful bags of mostly water!
As a "bag" of water, I need the clear refreshing liquid inside and out. Water is vital for a healthy diet, so I strive to drink plenty, but I also need water for my mental health.
You might recall an earlier post titled "The Think Tank." (click here) Soaking in a tub of water helps me think, sort things out, get ideas.
When traveling, nothing seems to refresh my road weary self as much as checking into a hotel with a swim pool, hot tub, a shower with stinging water pressure...and a tub with a slanted back. Any, or all, of those water sources revive me.
Large bodies of water are almost a requirement when I vacation. A beach. A lake. A river.
Yep, water is the elixir of life. I want it near me as well as in me.
So call me a bag of mostly water, Mr. Alien, but don't call me ugly.
