Apparently I don't drink enough. 

I better be more specific. I can assure you that I drink plenty of wine - though one can never have enough I feel. I also drink more than my fair share of coffee.

What I don't drink enough of is water. It must be true. My wife keeps telling me so. My doctor keeps telling me so.

I have every sympathy with W. C. Fields who said that he never drank water because of the disgusting things that fish do in it.

Now I have been handed a book by Dr. F. Batmanghelidj which explains how water is a virtual cure-all for most of the body's ailments. It makes compelling reading and let's face it, anyone with 'Batman' in their name must be worth giving it your attention.

So I've succumbed. I can't get enough of the stuff. I'm drinking it morning, noon and night (and peeing at dawn, midday, afternoon and evening). Soon I expect to be fizzing with health.

I will let you know how I'm getting on  just as soon as I am out of the toilet long enough to report on it. 


  1. Awaiting your report with bated breath :D


  2. I think drinking water really does help us to feel more awake and alert! In your case awake at all times of the day and night needing the toilet! I don't drink enough of it then wonder why I feel so tired! Ann X
