Look, the first spring bulbs are (somewhat grotesquely) pushing up through the waterlogged earth! And speaking of water, today at the gym I went to get a drink at the water fountain, and there was a guy who got there just before I did, so naturally I just stood aside to wait my turn, which would have been the end of the story, except that he drank, and drank, and drank some more, and then kept drinking while I stood there, sort of amazed and perplexed, but not at all hovering because I didn’t want to be annoying. It got to the point where I considered leaving and going to another fountain, but I didn’t want to give him the pleasure of seeing me storm off, either. Eventually he stopped and I got my small drink, but I still think that if someone’s behind you at the water fountain, etiquette dictates that you don’t spend three minutes gulping it down unless you’ve recently been flown in from thirty days in a life-raft at sea, but this guy wasn’t even sweating; he was just waiting for his trainer.
