“Gallon-A-Day” Tanka 2089

(July 27, 2089)

Gallon-a-day thirst:

room-temp* water, with chaser

of ‘nother to match!


Beer, wine, good hooch require more –

I avoid soda and teas!

  • (Cold water, especially the kind served in restaurants and bars with large ice floes floating, is dangerous to my gut when I go outside in 90+-degree heat.  Like an ice-cream headache.  Three 40-ounce mugs of water during the day and often a like amount from late afternoon to evening.  Surely that much more if beer or wine is involved.  Hooch?  At two ounces or so so infrequently these days I slip it in between sips of DeNial!)
