Never a Dull Moment
I’ll bet you’ve heard of effervescent water—sparkling expensive liquid silver. But the other night I learned of dull water. What is that? Well…
Redheaded moppet tangled in bed covers peeks out.
“Mom, I’m thiiiiirstyyyy.”
“There’s a glass of water on the window sill from last night.”
“Noooooooooooooo, Mo-om, that water is dull, dull, dull!”
Though never having heard it described exactly that way before, I knew what he meant. I know how water goes flat and dead tasting if left in a glass too long. Smiling, I brought him a fresh glass and poured the old into the ficus tree next to his bed.
“Mom, do plants like dull water?”
I apologized to my house plant and brought it a fresh glass, too.
Sometimes you just see the world in a whole new way.
