So, I know drinking water is good for you, but I just couldn’t bring myself to drink too much of it. It’s probably due to my Diet Dr. Pepper addiction, but something weird happened the other day. Out of nowhere I got a massive craving for water: lemon water.
Here’s the peculiar thing about this: I don’t like lemon water. Or should I say, I didn’t like lemon water…until now. You see, in restaurants when offered water, I’d always say, “…no lemon.” (It’s odd that I’d even accept the offer, since the glass usually sat next to my plate untouched.) I hated it when the lemon even tapped the water as it sat on the side of the glass.
So, on my next trip to the market, I bought lemons, filled a pitcher with water, and added those lemons. And I started drinking, and drinking, and drinking. This morning when I woke up for class at 4:00 a.m., I had one Diet Dr. Pepper…just one…to stave off the headache that would definitely visit with a cold turkey approach to quitting the soda habit. And then I started drinking my lemon water.
I have no idea what brought on this desire for a new beverage, but I hope it lasts. It’s better for my health, and maybe I’ll sleep sounder at night.
