Tap water it is. No, not tap water, I almost forgot: tap water has chemicals and fluoride and stuff in it, so a no go on that. Maybe I should get one of those R/O (reverse osmosis) systems installed; second thought, R/O water is stripped of all the minerals that my body needs. Maybe I’ll go Paleo with my water and drink like a caveman. I’ll find the nearest stream and I can capture some water in a stone cup – but wait, what if the water is tainted with bacteria or animal feces or something? I can bring the water home and boil it, or maybe even sanitize it over a fire to save gas. But will the smoke from the fire pollute the air? Maybe I’ll pray for some rain and stand outside with my mouth open.
