Life’s Too Short to be a “Midiot”

Not being a New Yorker, I’ve had to watch “Cronut mania” from afar. And after watching for the last week or so, I still don’t get it.

“Uhhhh… It’s Water.”

The title of this post was Number One Son’s response after I described Nestlé’s newest bottled water product, “Resource,” to him, while we were between leg press sets at the gym. According to Nestlé, however, it’s not just any ol’ bottled water! It’s… “…a premium water made specifically for ‘a woman who is a little more on the trendy side and higher-income side,’...
