This week Linda has given us liqu to use for our Stream of Consciousness posts, which can be used either as a start of a word or as part of a word. I choose to use it as part of the word liquid.
When I saw the prompt this week, I was originally going to write about liquor, but that wouldn’t be much good seeing as I haven’t drunk alcohol for years. When my daughter was very young I brought her up on my own so I never wanted to drink too much if she stayed the night with my mum. Young children and hangovers do not go well together at all, and I don’t believe in being drunk in charge of a child either, so never drank in her presence.
My liquids of choice are tea and coffee, pretty boring of course, but I do go mad and have the odd glass of sugar-free fizzy pop on special occasions. After all, drinking coffee at some social occasions seems a little out-of-place, unless of course, it is at a family member’s house where I can just go and put the kettle on.
Despite my huge liquid intake, when I went to the gym, I was surprised to find that I was dehydrated, well at least, according to their special scales which measures body fat other goodies.You just can’t beat good old water of course for keeping the body hydrated amongst the other benefits that it has. Funnily enough, it doesn’t count in large amounts of tea and coffee!

I know you also don’t drink a lot of alcohol either, Sis. You can’t beat a good cuppa! 🙂
You really can’t!!!! ☕
I don’t drink much, either, but boy do I drink! Hah! I drink all day, but alcohol is pretty much an occasion for me. I’ve always had issues with being a sole parent in my husband’s absence, or I’ve got to drive, so not much on the buzzing drinks, but BIG on coffee, tea, soda, seltzer, water, too, but it’s dull 😛
Well, I was going to say that we were both sensible, but that makes us sound really boring!!! 🙂
We are far from boring, but I’ll agree to sensible 🙂
I share your tea and coffee not counting as water problem, Judy.
HA! It is very frustrating! 🙂
This is me!

Hello, and thanks for stopping by. I am Judy, in my (very) early fifties and decided that life definitely gets more interesting as it goes on! I am a wife and a mum and have just finished University as a Registered Nurse, after having worked as an Associate Practitioner in the NHS. I am also a poet and the author of my debut book, 'Rhymes of the Times.' I love to laugh, and I love rhyming words too, so I joined the two together, and my book was born. I am currently working on another book in the series also. I am a prolific blogger and enjoy writing funny stories, anecdotes, and anything really that takes my fancy.
