I am parched. I have been since I do not know when. But especially today. I am not No. 1. I am not completely lacking in moisture. But I am No. 2. Both informally and formally, I am thirsty. I am also very thirsty.

From the moment I arrived at my gig at 0730, I started to drink out of a 20 ounce mug. For ten and a half hours, all I did was refill my 20 ounce mug of ice water. Some refills I had generic MIO in it but for the vast majority of those hours, I was guzzling good ‘ole Tyndall tap water. It was no different once I got home. I plopped myself on my couch, just in time to watch Big Brother and I had already drank (3) three 32 ounce water bottles. Then I grabbed my gallon jug of ice water. I was and still am a very thirsty girl.

It is almost 11PM and while I should be in bed, getting fully rested for tomorrow’s big parade … I’ve been walking back and forth to the kitchen refilling my 64 ounce blue mug. You’d think I’d rather be all cozy-like in bed watching a little true crime before shut-eye but nope…. I am sitting here guzzling ice water. This is so wackadoodle. What is this parched girl to do???
