    Remember When?

    Do you remember when you would drink from a garden hose?

    The other day it was fricken hot here and we were all outside and I was going to take my oldest to get a drink from the hose and my wife gave me that look like dont you dare.

    I dont know about everyone else but when I was a little kid, we didnt have bottle water, it was the garden hose darn it!

    That was some of the best water!
    Somebody Please, what the hell is that smell?

    The garden hose was our desani bottled water growing up................... As a kid that was the best water in the world, since as a kid you waited until you were about to pass out before you wasted time with drinking water.................lol

    I especially liked the warm water from the hose after it sat in the sun. Kind of like sun-brewed tea, except with hose plastic instead of tea leaves for flavoring!

    I would have passed out many times over if I hadn't been able to drink from water hoses when I would be at the barn 12 hours a day in the Summer time as a young teen.

    Even as an adult I'd drink from the water hose. On those rare occasions I'd leave the water jug back at the shop, the hose was all we had!


    I loves me some hose water!

    It depends where I'm at. In a city I will NOT drink from the hose cause it tastes like crap. Out in the boonies were I prefer to be I am perfectly happy with hose water.

    Why not? It's the exact same water that comes through your tap.

    On another note, why do some people think it's icky to get a drink out of the bathroom faucet?

    This is exactly why we get bottled water. The tap water in my town where I am at sucks big time. If I was in a regular house and not this crappy Mobile Home Park I might think otherwise. The ranch my family used to own had its own well, so I hear you there PGG.

    The garden hose was the best. It always had the somewhat metallic, grass taste, mmmmmm.

    Well except for the ants, slugs, snails, ladybugs, cockroaches, earthworms, and caterpillars that managed to crawl into hoses while they lie on the ground. They add to the flavor though.

    My dad used to do the same thing to us as kids.

    Exactly! Which is why we don't drink or cook with our tap water either. We only use filtered water here.

    Hose water is only good if you let it get cold. Otherwise the taste of rubber ruins the whole thing.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.
