“This water tastes disgusting.”

“Sorry, honey, it’s from the tap, didn’t make it inside the store today.”

“You didn’t make it inside?”

Sasha shook her head.  “I made it to the parking lot.  Then I started thinking about how everyday for the past I don’t know how many days has been exactly the same.  I’m sick of it.”

“Okay, so what did you do instead?”

“Mandy, Paula, Jane and I drove up to the water tower with some beer like we used to do in college.  It was a blast.”

“Four grown women getting drunk on the side of the road?”

“When you say it like that you make it sound trashy!  Anyway, it was so hot we ended up climbing the water tower, going for a quick dip…”

“You contaminated the town’s water supply?”

“It was a prank we pulled back in high school.  No one died then.  I’m sure it’s fine.”

Rob dumped his glass of water down the drain and grabbed his car keys.  “I’m going to the store.”

  1. Funny story. I think that it would gross me out if I knew people were swimming around in my drinking water. I’d head to the store as well. Great job!

  2. Reunions have a way of getting out of control sometimes….like in this case! It’s fun to revert back to the “good ole days” , but not always a healthy thing. I can see the store’s business booming for quite a while!!! Fun story. 🙂
