I got water for Christmas

The oldest daughter gave me this interesting gift for Christmas. 1 Litre water features a unique integrated cup, which makes refilling the bottle practical since you can avoid contaminating the bottle with your filthy, germ-ridden mouth.

Of course, this isn’t just any pedestrian bottled water. It is, according to a press release issued by the company, “bottled directly from the pristine Au Sable State Forest in the heart of northern, lower Michigan.”  (What? Where’s “northern, lower Michigan”?)

Further, the water is “naturally filtered as it percolates through the glacial sand and rock in a confined aquifer. With a perfect PH balance and low mineral composition, the artesian spring water’s taste is exceptional, clean, crisp and invigorating.”

I’m not sure about all that, but it is quite sporty and the concept sits well with this southern girl who was taught that is always quite rude to drink directly from a container.
