Water Water Everywhere

Some of you may know that I am a total water snob. I can hear y’all rolling your eyes and saying “Water is water. It doesn’t taste like anything”. Well, you’re wrong. Not all water is created equal. For example: I don’t like to drink water out of the tap here in Florida (I had no problem with it in the Mound). Here, I can smell AND taste the chlorine, and I can’t quite stomach it. So I buy water. Now, normally, I’m an Evian girl through and through. It’s heavy, it’s creamy, and it’s slightly sweet. I don’t care much for Volvic, since it tastes gritty to me. I HATE Dasani: it makes me thirsty because of the sodium content (yes, Virginia, they add sodium to some waters). Ozarka is out because, well, you can’t get it here, and even if you could, it tastes like dirt. Fiji is ok, but a little expensive and a bit on the minerally side. The holy grail of bottled water is Gleneagles, but I can’t even find that online anymore (which is sad, because even Camille realized that not all water is just water after she tried it). And here’s a quick aside on Gleneagles: It’s rainwater that falls in Scotland, travels down into caverns, and percolates for 15 years before being bottled. And if anyone knows where I can get some, please let me know.
Most people think I’m crazy, but if you start paying attention to the water that you drink, you’ll begin to notice a difference. So yes, I buy my water. The good news for Kevin’s wallet is that there is a great alternative here in the Sunshine State: Zephyrhills water. It’s bottled straight from the spring in the next county over, and it is delicious, even if it isn’t Gleneagles. And before you go thinking I’m all crazy, there are people who actually do this for a living.

    The other “nice” aspect is that it is bottled using less plastic (and a lighter plastic) in the bottles.

    We actually drink filtered water, because I am squicked about drinking tap water from ANY tap.

    I like Voss, but only if it’s in a glass bottle, or in general, any water that’s bottled in glass. I try not to use plastic at all if I can help it.

    Evian to me has the consistency of drool, and after Robyn’s 30th birthday, I can’t even stomach it. I didn’t really like it much to begin with.

    No one in Florida drinks tap water. It’s disgusting! We filter our water.
