CAUTION AHEAD





... Caution: I am afraid that I might sound quite like my dear father (oh dear...!), because this is how he would tell me all...all...all...the time or even anyone who would listen to his preachings, hee! He would say, "... soft drinks are bad for you! Just drink your plain fresh water! It's the best! Drink more than 8 glasses a day!". So...guess what; I simply have learned not to drink my favorite soda in front of him...heehee! I am not a camel for goodness sake... where do I store eight glasses of water in my body... I know, I know...his intention is all pure and good blahblabla... but try living with the same tune for half my lifetime and we can talk later, shall we...hee! Anyhow, this art piece is for you, dad... and don't look at me funny... I did not drink any of them... I promise...(burrrrrrp...oops!)
Seriously though, there are medical experts that 'sounded' like my dear father these days...consider reading them (link to the articles provided below) LENORENEVERMORE always remember this; knowledge is power... then, hoping we may act or not act accordingly, amen! Also hope that we continue to have a healthy life. One more famous 'preach' from my dear father; " Child, prevention is always better than cure.. no more soda drinks!". Well, that is my daddy alright & now you know why Madonna's famous old song, 'Papa Don't Preach' was my theme song growing up...heehee!
Enough about my dear father... The artist is CHRIS JORDAN and his work is beyond words or preachings! Try counting the numbersss... of cans he used for this master piece! Anyone who is free this coming weekend, feel free to start counting them... Heehee! Shall we...? (no thank you, I am sure we have better things to do, yay!)

Totally agree - where would one store 8 glasses of water? Sure, we lose water through sweat (ugh) and of course other dispensing ways (need we be descriptive?) BUT it's far-fetched to drink 8 glasses of pure water a day! But hey, water content is in just about any other liquid drink. I pop a 1000mg Vitamin C (Redoxon) in half a bottle of water for my kids each day. That counts for one serving right there and they get to enjoy sizzling orange "soda" fortified with 1000mg of Vitamin C! Unfortunately, you're talking to a coffee drinker... I barely drink 2 glasses of plain water in a 24 hour cycle. Sigh.
