The water the water didn't realize it's dangerous size

Mr M: Dad, do you want a Sprite?

Me: No. That's ok.

Mr M: Dad. You can't just drink water all the time.

Me: Why not?

Mr M: Because if you drink too much water, then you'll get healthy and more healthy. And then you'll get sick.

Me: I think you've got it backwards there dude.

Mr M: No I don't. If you get too healthy your body gets sick.



I wasn't aware it worked that way. I might need to go read up on the immune response.

I rarely see fat people drinking water. See them eating relatively healthy foods all the time.

I think Mr. M means that you'll get sick of being healthy. You'll go on a junk food and heroin bender. Malt Balls and Golden Brown.

I drink a ton of water too. Maybe he's thinking about those cases where people have been forced to consume water in hazing rituals and some have died - seriously. It tips certain levels to turn toxic against the body & made some news last year.

it is because i told him how if you drink too much water at one time it can kill you. it was on the news...a woman guzzled a whole bunch of water and died. so, see..he is brilliant.
