Water vs. Pop

monkeyinabox: “Mind you, this was back in the days before bottled water was all the rage. Water came from the tap, unless you bought gourmet water, Perrier, or whatever rich people drank. Growing up in a place with good tap water, it makes that kind of stuff seems pretty stupid.”

Great bit on being a “soda pop junkie.” I remember back in the days when I worked graveyard shift in Spokane doing (essentially) data processing, I’d take a 2-liter bottle of Mountain Dew to work and often finish it before I left.

And yeah, I never really got the bottled water thing, either. Growing up, we had a well, so our water was pretty pure and uncut.

Well, except for this one time in the cistern… that’s a story that almost turned me off of water for good, but I think I’ll save it for another day.

  1. Central Oregon water is awesome. I used to live south of Sunriver a bit, and we had our own well. That water was so dang good. Bend’s water, while still very good, doesn’t taste nearly like that water did.

  2. Did you mean "Alton" Brown?

    Bend water is alright; I can definitely smell/taste the chlorine, though. And it just doesn’t compare to well water.

  3. Water is healthier for you. Though I hate pop, sometimes I just can’t resist the taste of Diet Pepsi.
