Are you constantly tired, always getting headaches, always sore after an easy workout? Is your mom still nagging you about not doing your homework? Not making great grades? Have you ever broken a bone? Is that person you're crushing on ignoring you? Are you as short as Mr. Tye and want to be a giant like Mr. Grover? If these are questions you are constantly asking, than do I have a secret answer for you… DRINK WATER!!
Let me tell you about the first time I tried this life-changing, miracle drink. It’s clear, tasteless, and has a boring appearance, but despite all that I’m never going back to my pre-water ways. That’s right, it’s not just a new health phase: its a lifestyle. I’m not going to sit here and tell you why water is good for you and the billions of reasons behind it. Just go talk to one of those nature people and they’ll be happy to do it for you. But this liquid heaven really is, well, just what I said, heaven. First of all, you’re going to have to go to the bathroom A LOT! So if you’re stuck in another boring class you now have the perfect excuse to leave. Also, be prepared for a lot of exercise since you have to go on that long trek to the bathroom every 6 minutes. And, if your coach is mad at you for missing a workout, just take your ginormous, 64oz, stainless steel, 25lb. water bottle and do some bicep curls during class. You’ll basically be Captain America by the end of the day. So, even though most of this is just fun hyperbole, by the end of my crazy week of actually being healthy and drinking water, I’d say one thing; “Stay thirsty my friends.”
