Truth In Packaging

I was reading my milk bottle this morning (my life is a thrill a minute!) and printed upon it was this cryptic epigram: "For optimists, dreamers and the inspired...". It was skim milk. If ever a dairy product was uninspired and not conducive to dreaming, that would have to be the one. Maybe whey would be less so, but not by much. This led to thoughts about other products and what little aphoristic phrases could be applied to them:

Coffee- For realists, disenchanted and the uninspired...
Chocolate- For hedonists, cravers and the decadent...
SUVs- For overcompensators, megalomaniacs and the insecure...
Hot Dogs- For the indiscrimminate, greasy and omnivorous...
George W.Bush- For the narrow-minded, elitist and disingenuous...
Blogging- For optimists, dreamers and the inspired...

Blogging: The skim milk of literature?

In Richmond, we have this bottled water called "Smart Water" that supposedly has electrolytes. It's meant to "make you smarter" and designed for anyone who has ever been called a "geek, dork, four-eyes, brain..." et al.

Just thought you should know.

Is skim milk any good? I've often wondered.

...good? Yes, nutritionally. It's just that it is somewhat flavor-challenged, if you follow me. So how is "Smart Water", or haven't you ever had any?;-)

"Smart Water" unlike skim milk is much more flavorful, if you get the flavored bottles of course. Otherwise, it tastes like regular bottled water. I suppose it's a placebo because I always feel as though I could start a computer software company after drinking a jug.
