  •  My beverage choices: I'm guilty of buying (4+ / 0-)

    bottled water,
    but only the cheapest kind,
    88 cents a gallon,
    Great Value drinking water,
    from my Walmart workplace,
    and I buy it because my wife and her family,
    my new family,
    ask for it.

    It does taste a lot better than Wichita, Kansas tap water.

    Besides that,
    I drink from the drinking fountains at work a lot.

    I don't know if that water is filtered,
    but it tastes pretty good.

    I drink a lot of coffee at work,
    made with tap water,
    and water from a Huyndai filtering machine
    in the break room.

    Not sure if anyone has changed the filter lately?

    My new bride, Tonia, drinks a lot of Great Value
    cranberry grape juice cocktail,
    which costs about a dollar a quart,
    four dollars a gallon,
    and she drinks about twenty gallons a month.

    She's worth it.

    My only beverage treat,
    other than a few sips of Tonia's juice,
    is my red beer,
    which is a project each time I prepare one:

    In a Mason jar,
    I put V8 juice,
    only a cheaper Mott version of V8,
    up to a spot between the words
    wide mouth
    and the word
    Ball,
    that much tomato juice.

    Then I add:
    salt,
    Worcestershire sauce,
    lemon juice,
    hot sauce,
    and molasses.

    (Molasses is a wonderful thing.)

    And one can of cheap beer.

    Stir and stir.

    My meal can be bologna and cheese and cheetos,
    but with my red beer,
    it's a delightful gourmet meal.

    •  That red beer must be rough on the stomach (3+ / 0-)

      I'd be drinking a whole bunch of milk or alot of alka seltzer, or both, after that. ;P




      Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.

      •  Not at all rough on my stomach. The stomach (2+ / 0-)
        Recommended by:

        produces acid,
        and my stomach produces too much acid
        if I look at food,
        and delay actually eating it.

        I've got my stomach trained
        to deal with what I eat,
        high fat meals,
        and my special red beer.

        All in harmony.
