My study abroad advisers said I could drink the tap water, and I did, but dam it should I have! Luckily, it is filtered, and I’ve had my meningitis shot. It has a taste, and it is actually pretty good, I like tasty water like drinking Evian out of the sink, recently I switched to bottled water. I an even more interested in what other people are drinking. So what kind of water do students drink? Is it only the water found in beer?
I know what you maybe thinking that the only water people drink is Paris is Evian. True they sell it on the metro for the gauged prices of 2,30 euro for a demi liter, I do not see many people drinking bottles of water and here is why. Firstly, there is absolutely now water allowed in classrooms. Seriously, students risk severe admonishment if a professor catches them drinking water in class. It is so severe that bottles of water are note even allowed to be seen by a professor.
However, I caught my previous French teacher at La Sorbonne drinking water once. HAHA! It was when a student was reading. She turned her back took a drink, then turned around and wiped her mouth. I gave her the dirtiest look, for justice sake!
People in the store buy all kinds of different bottled water. The biggest, question is gas or sans gas. Which means sparkling or not. I like sparkling water, San Pellegrino is my favorite, has been sense before Paris. I am not sure though why there is such a difference between sparkling and non sparkling water.
What is it about those tiny bubbles? Could it be that they tickle the throat. Sure, I heard that the tickling bubbles are like a microscopic throat party. Is it that the bubbles relax the stomach, 6 cups of coffee later there is not much of a medicinal value is a glass or even bottle of any sparkling water. It is classier, because bubbles are also found in champagne. Applying the transitive property to water does not work because it is from a different compound than grapes. These answers still leave me cold.
Bubbles are universally class then. How many democrats does it take to screw in a light bulb? Well, once you get them talking about bubbles, the answer is zero, because they will not decide weather bubbles are universally classy or not, they just wait their chance to control water production then fail to come to an agreement because some people still do not like bubbles.
Why bottled water anyway, I mean the tap water is healthy, right? It is filtered in a sewage treatment plant, where the excriment is removed, which makes it drinkable. Some people just do not like the taste of water, the same people who prefer their water to taste like nothing.
What about in restaurants or café, what kind of water do people drink. It depends upon the person, which is the answer to the larger question at hand. Water type depends on the person. Tap water or bottled water comes down to a personal choice, with possibly immense unforeseen consequences stemming from insecurity. Bottled water like the type of shoes one wears or the type of watch, says something about each of us as a person. Rushing into a decision could be fatal.
