  •  It aquires real fast in a dry, hot climate (5+ / 0-)

    ... trust me. One summer month at my house and you'd be sucking it down and liking it.

    The sweat evaporates off so you don't realize you're dehydrated so it's mandatory water sucking while outside, unless you want to pass out or collapse.  Once the air temp goes up over your body temp, it's time.

      when I'm that hot and dehydrated, it's too heavy.  I have to have either sports drink of weak, sweet iced tea, preferably the latter.  It's not just water you lose, it's salts.

        ... those of us who don't process instant sugars and  carbs very well anymore, that would make us sicker than a dog. But I've seen other people who do this.

        Have to be careful with the tea, too much caffeine is a diuretic, in addition to bumping up the heart rate, and that is the last thing you want happening.
