Yesterday was my first father’s day! It was a good day. We had good food with my parents, watched a sweet Tom Selleck “Jesse Stone” made-in-canada glorious murder investigation movie, and drew this little ditty! BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!
It was also the first time IN MY LIFE that I tried “cucumber infused water”. Also known as a glass of water with veggies soaking in it. It reminded me a lot of working dish-pit, when we’d have to clean the salad bar. We used to DARE eachother to drink this crap, and now it’s like, a thing people do. Not only that, it’s a POPULAR thing people do. My mom has a “infuser”, which is like, a water bottle MADE for the infusing of fruits and veggies.
Fruits make sense. Infusing strawberries or apples or whatever is really no different than a lemon slice in a glass of water, but fruits are one thing, and veggies quite another. And what about tomatoes? The ever-present category defier! Do people infuse tomatoes? Why not just drink the ketchup water? Or have tomato juice?
Big thanks to my dad for the punch-line brainstorm.
