Lonely Water

I gave my “don’t waste water” speech to some of my kids today. Some of them started talking about the necessity of saving water, and various water tips.

One of my kids, however, offered this sage piece of information: Lonely water can be recycled.

I looked at him oddly. “Lonely water can be recycled?”

“Uh huh.” He seemed quite pleased that he had stumped me.

I started to ask for an explanation, but standing there outside the restroom waiting for the children to all take care of their business and refill their water bottles, it suddenly occured to me what the opposite of “lonely” water is.

I can say that I have been truly educated in the ways of lonely water and its recyclability.

(I promised him I would blog about this tonight.)
