Bottles of water ... Jugs of water ... photo owned by Gloria Faye Brown Bates
We have to buy our water as do a lot of people around where we live. So, I'm always opening a plastic bottle of water ... or a jug of water.
I'm thankful to have water that's good to drink ... to bathe in ... to cook with ... to wash with . It means the very world to us. So, I never waste it ... not even one drop if possible.
I caught myself ... trying to get the last drop of water from a plastic bottle yesterday. I became aware of myself letting the water flow from the bottle into the coffeemaker ... holding the bottle up once it emptied ... to see 'just a little bit' of water left in the bottle.
I turned the bottle upside down once more ... let the water run into the reservoir. I turned the bottle upright ... there was 'just a bit more water' in the bottom of the bottle. I turned the bottle upside down once more ... let the water drain out.
Letting the last drop flow from the plastic bottle ... I turned it back up ... getting the idea if it possible to ... pour the last drop from the bottle. I turned it upside down once more ... another drop flowed out of the bottle! This made me wonder ... is there a last drop?
As I went to throw the bottle into a special bag I use for plastic ... a quick thought came to my mind ... 'suppose my life was at stake ... and it depended on whether a 'last drop' of water came of this now empty bottle ... you know ... you die if a last drop comes out ... live if no drop comes out! I feel the panic ... am I going to live ... am I going to die!?
I unscrewed the lid back off ... looked at the bottom of the bottom thinking ... it's now or never! If a drop of water comes out ... I die!
I was into my game! Please, please ... I don't want to die! Please don't let a drop of water come out! I held the bottle above my mouth ...
At the very second I thought I was going to live ... I felt a cold drop of water fall to my tongue! I fell over ... dead!
Is there ever a last drop?

Imagination can feel real when we play a game ... especially a 'live or die' game ... adrenaline begins to pump :) Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

We have to buy water for us, our Pups to drink. We can't drink water from the tap.
