Okay, if you are still around to read this and not vaporized particles of irradiated matter after the Mideast went nuclear, it is Monday ( I’m posting this at lunch on Friday The 13th-WITH a full moon to really stir things up ). I have a vacation day today so this is all you get, a single pathetic sad little post. No comments will be answered. I really needed this extra day off, as last week had three full blown Mondays. Normally that kind of abuse is reserved for the Dreaded Watermelon Season ( where we get rinds [ long story ] in the hundreds of pounds and/or nasty imploded rotted genetically modified fruit that turns into a sodden mold ), or Christmas Season when for two and a half to three months the entire town of Yuppies buy off their ill gotten gain loot guilt with extra donations. Yes, this is technically Watermelon Season but this year the store was bought out by yet another corporation and they went heavily into other type fruit bowls so the emphasis has broadened. Produce season, which started in an unforgivable last week in February, still sucks but it ain’t anywhere near as bad as melon season except the occasional odd day ( so I guess it should be Watermelon Day rather than Season ). Or, Season Of Days. Yes, you WILL get this kind of long winded justification every time I take a vacation day. Get used to it.
Okay, so the Mideast is warming up. The locals are re-conquering the place a lot quicker than we ever managed to subdue it in the first place. Iran wants to send troops in. I lose track of which country is Sunni and which is Shitte, and so who is backing who. I don’t have enough information to write an article about it, so you get a warmed over pasty pathetic topic instead. Hydration. As you all remember when I first switched over to this new and improved blog, I got a week long bad headache, totally out of character for me. I started drinking water on a serious basis to try to help knock it out. That didn’t work, but I find my health improved after this continued process. Before, most of my liquids were in coffee form, then Gatorade or flavored waters in seltzer form or other equally barely healthy forms. I only seriously drank water through the summer- and even then it probably wasn’t enough. But since I am forcing myself to drink more than my body is calling for ( drink one half ounce per pound of body weight. I round up my weight to an even 200 and hence drink a minimum of 100 ounces a day ), I notice I’m feeling a lot better. What I thought was my body rebelling in middle age, the frequent urination at less than full volume-the twice nightly waking up to pee, was just dehydration. By chugging a quarter of my ration prior to drinking coffee in the morning I no longer feel poorly after drinking too much of the black elixir. When I drink most of my water prior to noon, I just have to sip some thereafter and I feel well hydrated even through the hot afternoons. Plus, that almost eliminates the nightly wake-ups ( and when I do get up, I pee normally rather than at a trickle ). As usually, I had to reinvent common sense in order to believe it rather than listening to others.
