    According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, water helps keep body temperature normal.  Water lubricates and cushions your joints, protects your spinal cord and other sensitive tissues. Water gets rid of wastes through urination, perspiration, and bowel movements.

  • Men, tongues, words, and wounds

    In my (albeit feeble) defense, I had just come from undergoing a medical test done under sedation, which may or may not have loosened my tongue. Or maybe it was because I hadn’t eaten in 24 hours and hunger affected my brain.

    Whatever the reason, I said something that embarrassed my husband.

    We had stopped at a local restaurant for a burger. I ordered the thickest, beefiest, cheesiest burger on the menu, plus fries, and my husband ordered a veggie burger and a salad.
