I have been at my current job for two and a half years, which means I have been a member of the water club for the same amount of time. The water club is an institution created by individuals who actually want to live beyond 50, and they demonstrate this by drinking spring water, and not the dreaded DC water. Each and every month we pay a fee, to drink wonderful Deer Park water, and I visit the water bottle at least 4 times a day. I also eat an apple once a day, so what does that mean? Rather than disrespect my apple by bathing it in tap water, I daily treat my apple to a spring water bath. I make sure to do it quick, so no one will catch and accuse me of wasting good water. Two and a half years I have been doing this, and I had yet to get caught..until this morning.

This morning, the day before my last day, one of my co-workers caught me rinsing my apple off in spring water, and they asked me what I was doing. I finished rinsing, turned around, and asked them what they said, which would give me time to come up with a good explanation. Finally, I just said that apple deserved only the finest of waters, and they didn't laugh at all, and I just walked out. The water I had used to rinse my apple was sprayed all over the carpet, and I felt a tad guilty. But damn if this apple I'm eating isn't clean as a whistle.

Here is my article on Game 3 of the Lakers/Celtics.

LOL, that's great. I mean, is there a fucking requirement that the water be used only for drinking?
I've used the water-club water for cleaning fruit too, but I do it in the privacy of my cube..

your co-workers should mind their own business. There are far greater wrongs in the world--and in the office--than treating your apple to a Deer Park rinse.

I agree with chubbs. Now in true Larry David fashion you should start washing everything from the Deer Park water - cups, forks, undershirts, etc. hahahahahaa

co-workers can be some of the most unnecessary individuals at times.
i feel you. so continue to wash your fruit in spring water, wherever you end up.
but you don't seem like the type of brotha that is phased by shit like that.
