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.
