    Oh, when will you socialists stop your madness?! I knew it wouldn't end with healthcare! Now you want to take away my Constitutional, not to mention biblical, right to carry bottled water with me at all times?!

    In fact, just to avoid spilling any water, I often surround my bottled water with another plastic bottle. And then I promptly throw both bottles away when I'm finished. Why? Because I am an American, and we believe in a little thing called freedom.

    No, seriously, the wife several months ago bought three stainless steel water bottles (blue for me, pink for herself, green for the boy). They do an excellent job, as you can imagine, of keeping tap water tasty and fresh. In addition, should a riot erupt at one of my son's Little League games, we'll all be armed with convenient weapons.

    Now, if only I could get the other members of this household to stop using Kleenex/tissues. My, how I hate those things -- what a waste of resources.

      Buy a big stack, at least half a dozen per person, of cotton handkerchiefs.  Don't get cotton and synthetic blend, they aren't absorbent enough.

        •  Making paper uses a lot of water. (0+ / 0-)

          On balance, I think handkerchiefs win, even with needing water to be washed.

            a diaper service and cloth diapers is just as bad for the environment as disposable diapers. I wondered if the same studies had been made for tissue vs hankerchiefs.
            I don't know all the arguments, maybe trees are more easily replaced than water.
            I was just wondering.
