Don't Rush the Hydration, Kid
by Tricia Williford
July 14th, 2016

If you jump on a trampoline,

and you get super thirsty,

and you come running into my kitchen for hydration,

and you are too hurried to get a cup,

so you drink directly from the water dispenser on the refrigerator door,

you will feel like you are drinking from a firehose.

And you will throw up on my floor.


True story.  I just saw it happen.
