There is a glass of water currently sitting on my kitchen counter.
It has been sitting there for three days.
I am thirsty.
Actually, I am dehydrated.
I know this because I keep putting Chapstick on my lips, hoping to impart some moisture to them.
I know the glass of water is there.
I pass by it 4 times a day to make my child's food.
Yet, I do not drink from it.
I am in need of water...water is in front of me...but I do not drink.
If that doesn't speak volumes about my attitude towards taking care of myself, I don't know what does.
