Cucumber infused water

2014-6-16Yesterday 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.

  1. Happy Dad’s Day! Glad you had a good one.
    Your comic and story made me laugh. When I was a kid, we never imagined people ‘buying’ water at all. What’s next? Oxygen bars? No wait… guess that’s already a thing.
    Anyway, draw on!

    • I think next big thing is “premium outside”. it’s like, when you leave your front door, you can swipe your credit card for an enhanced “outdoor experience”. Nothing actually changes, except for the feeling of superiority people will get from having spent money! There’s some kinks to work out, but we’ll let the guys down in projects figure it out. 😀

  2. We have infused items at our house often. Some ok others not keepers some just plain terrible. Maybe we can help each other in learning new things. Hmu
