It's the "Little Things"

It's no secret that I am easily amused, entertained, and satisfied. Quite honestly, I think that is a secret of a good life; being satisfied with the simple things.

One of the simple things that makes me happy happens from about the first of November until about mid-March or the first part of April; at least in Oklahoma.

I'm talking about cold tap water!

I love being able to go to the sink and getting a nice cold glass of water without having to go to the freezer to get ice. I love brushing my teeth with cold water. I like taking a Tylenol with cold water. Granted, it isn't great for face or hand washing, but that's what the "HOT" tap is for, right?

When we lived in the tropics, there was NEVER cold tap water. Sometimes is got "cool"; but never cold.

This morning, when I was brushing my teeth, I enjoyed an extra Dixie cup full of cold water, just for the sheer enjoyment! Have a cup of cold water on me!

I'm with ya on this one. I was just thinking about it the other day. Our ice maker has been broken and we are too lazy to use ice trays or buy ice. When it's cold outside I get to enjoy truly cold water.

With the cold we have had in S. Texas the past few days, actually that "cool" tropical water sounds mighty nice right now! :)

We haven't lived in cold weather like this since the winter '99. I will be glad to get back to the tropics, even if it means having to go to the frig for some ice!

I agree. I miss really cold tap water in the winter.

I also miss drinkable tap water, but that's another post. :)

Maybe I've been overseas too long, but the idea of drinking tap water just grosses me out!
