An easy solution to the bottled water problem is to slurp soda and sugary drinks. I mean, sparkling beverages. The body gets thirsty, and liquids make it, you know, unthirsty, or something. Being thirsty is bad. Being unthirsty is good! This is healthy, and fortunately, it’s also environmentally friendly, because many of these sparkling beverages come in cans instead of plastic! Did I mention that beverages quench thirst, so this makes all beverages healthy? Because, you know, they quench thirst? Coca-Cola says so, and the American Dietetic Association agrees, so this must be healthy.
Isn’t is great to know that coffee and soda are hydration alternatives to water? Now, if this little pipsqueak would just drink from a metal can instead of a plastic bottle, she’d be showing us how to stay hydrated, healthy and environmentally safe! I was really concerned about what alternatives might be available now that I’m avoiding buying bottled water. Sodas, I mean, sparkling beverages, come in cans, which are better for the environment. But until now, I thought sodas, I mean, sparkling beverages, were unhealthy. That just goes to show, boy, what do I know! All this time, the real health issue has been hydration. Nothing more, nothing less. Thanks, Coca-Cola!
“Why Hydrate? Coffee, water, sparkling beverages. Every drop you drink makes a difference.”
A “difference”. That’s one way of putting it, all right.
