Cucumber Water: I Had No Idea.

“Would you like some flavored water Miss?” asked the tall, blonde Sienna Miller look-alike at the hair salon the other day. Flavored water, how trendy, I thought. “Um, sure. What do you have?” “Cucumber, watermelon and lime!” she chirped. I went with cucumber. Within 20 seconds she returned with a tall, slender, dewy glass of…cucumber water. Now, I’ve never been a fan of “flavored” anything. I prefer water in its purest form. But the glass was pretty (and the straw was actually cute) so I went with it, begrudgingly.

I wanted to hate it. I wanted to smash the glass on the ground and demand for regular water. I wanted to stomp out of the salon with my fist in the air screaming, “NO ONE SHOULD BE FORCED TO LIVE LIKE THIS!!!!”

…..but I liked the water.

I LIKED AND LOVED THE WATER. I actually sucked it down and asked for more. And again. And once more. Cucumber water is gooooooood y’all.

And so simple. Like, DUH simple.

Slice up a dad-gum cucumber and stick it in water. The end.

DANG! Where have I been?

    It is good!!! And excellent to rest on your eyes too!! Slice one up and let it sit on your eyes after it's been in the fridge. Excellent way to get rid of puffy, hung-over eyes.
