Blogtober Day 3: I Can't Live Without...

This is a hard one... I am the worst when it comes to answering "What If.." questions. I can never come up with a good answer for "If you can bring ONE item with you on a desert island..." or "What items would you take from your house if it were burning down.." . Knowing me.. I'd panic and grab a can opener and bottle of mouthwash and run out the door.

This is going to sound ridiculous. And obvious.  And stupid. But please hear me out. The one thing I cannot live without is water. Yes. The liquid that makes up 90% or whatever of our bodies.

I feel like that girl from Mean Girls since I'm sure you're all asking "Who invited this chick who is taking this prompt THAT literally?"

It is my favorite drink. I drink it from the moment I wake up until the second I go to bed. When Paco and I drove to Colorado and Florida he warned me not to drink a lot on the way because we couldn't make 7,000 bathroom stops since I have the bladder of an ant. One of those tiny little black ants the size of a flea. By the time we got there I felt like a shriveled prune. I was sick for days afterwards because my body couldn’t function without my normal amount of liquid consumption. I drink glasses upon glasses of plain water every day. Soda? Juice? Alcohol? Sure, but I'd choose water first.

Okay, so now that I got that out of the way... I'm going to be a cheater and give you ONE other thing I can't live without.

I would have a really hard time living without my car. I live in a tiny town with one real grocery store and two gas stations that both close at 9 p.m. I need to travel for everything - groceries, work, fun, etc. The closest Wal-mart or mall is 30 - 40 minutes away and we have no public transportation. So without my car.. I’d be screwed.

  1. Oooooh, water, that's a good pick!!!! So important! No worries, I took it literally too, I said my family!

  2. I am a BIG water drinker as well. It's definitely my favorite liquid. I would pick it over just about anything else to drink (unless I am out for drinks).


  3. Water is my fave drink, too. Well, I mean... there's others that obvi come in at a close second...

  4. I wish I was better at drinking the recommended amount of water. Somedays I do really good and some days I barely drink any.

  5. Water is a good one! I mean, literally we really do need it to survive!

  6. Well really, none of us could live without water! I agree though, water can make me feel SO good in a way that nothing else can. Love your blog! New follower! :)

  7. I recently discovered I like water. I hated drinking it. I was always getting severely dehydrated. I like it with lemon. It also makes the drink I am addicted to right now which is green tea. Yum! I hope your having a great Friday!

  8. Love the literal direction you took with this post! Very refreshing! (Get my pun???)
