Oh no... I've got cooties
The last thing I want to worry about when driving is unscrewing a bottle cap from a bottle. Plus, it's kinda cool flipping the cap and sucking water as if you're just too busy to stop for a drink.
So, is there a right way to drink from a sports cap, and what restrictions are there in sharing a sports cap water bottle?
I faced that dilemma recently when my wife of eight years bought two bottles with sports caps for her and our son. I suggested she purchase two bottles since our son couldn't possibly drink a liter of water.
When she returned, my son took claim of one bottle. After finishing a Maude's taco, I found myself taking a sip of water from the other bottle which I thought was for me and my wife.
My wife stood up, walked back to the cashier and bought herself another liter bottle of water.
Supposedly, the way I wrapped my lips around the sports cap and sucked water from the bottle disgusted her, as if I have cooties or the plague.
I didn't know there was an etiquette in drinking water from a bottle you and your spouse share.
I then reminded her of the many "cooties" that went in creating our son, but that didn't diminish her disgust.
So, in the end, I had my own bottle. She finished hers and our son's bottle of water, which he drank the same way as I after finishing his bean and cheese taco.
Nonetheless, we were all content. Although, I've now developed a fear that perhaps I do have cooties.
