8 Glasses A Day = 200 Trips To The Bathroom

I have been coughing for about, oh, three weeks now and I am pretty sure it is slowly driving me mad.  By my calculations I will be posting about which cat food I prefer to eat with my headless doll collection while watching MTV2 in two more weeks.

So my constant hacking got me thinking: Maybe I should be taking better care of myself.  Perhaps I should not be as big of a slacker as I have been and move about more and eat better.

And maybe I should drink more water.

Now I really like water.  I mean, I actually like the taste of water and probably drink more than the average person.  Or at least I used to.  It seems that in the past few months I haven't been consuming as much H2O as I used to.  So I assumed that this is the reason I haven't been preforming as well.  I mean, it can't be stress from work making me ill and cough so much I am afraid my right eyeball will pop out of my head and explode on my monitor....

I decided to start using my Penguin Water Cooler again and drink 8 glasses of water a day, keeping me hydrated, improving my skin tone, and detoxifying my body from all the Black and Tans I drink at Pub Trivia on Tuesdays.

Problem is, I am now going to the bathroom approximately 400 times more than I did before.  (Wait, is that possible?  Whatever, I have a degree in writing, not in math.)  Anyway, I am going to the bathroom like 3-4 times a day which is starting to wear on me.

I wonder what else I can do to make me feel better that will possibly not take me away from my desk as often as it does.

I'll think about this more after I take the Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes out of the oven.

I make sure that I drink at least 2 bottles of water a day... but sometimes I need more(somes 3-4) and I notices that I too have to pee a lot

now, I also drink a pot of coffee every morning, and normally have a soda in the afternoon.

that makes for a lotta liquid going in

so you are not alone :P

I drink a lot of water and I go ALOT. But somedays I just drink a few 5 hour energies and I'm good to go.

Apparently my post touched the Water World and was linked on an H20 Website:

How strange is that?

And I love that I am not alone in my love for water.


Sorry for that side note, but I thought you should know.

After a day or two of increased water intake, your body readjusts and you won't have to pee so often. This is a good thing (drinking more water).

If you want to get rid of those toxins they have to go somewhere.

I would increase the black & tan intake. It's mostly water.

Taking that advice and pushing the Black and Tans. To hell with water! (Oh wait, dammit, no stout here at the lake. Back to water it is...)
