There's Something In The Water

Seriously, what the heck is wrong with the water in OKC? I haven't lived in OKC since the mid-nineties and had forgotten how unbelievably nasty the water tastes here. I've heard rumors that they actually filter this so called water and if that's the case then they must add a wee touch of "Essence of Fish Gill" before sending it on its way to our homes. Unfortunately, it's been too long since my Air Force days and I don't remember how to make a water filter with my shoestring and the leg of my BDUs so I'm going to have to turn to Brita to save my family from what must be a government plot to slowly turn us all into Sea Monkeys.

The water where I live is really hard, not to the touch obviously. Do they call it hard water over there? I'm never sure which of our phrases we have in common.
Anyway, it tastes pretty good, but, I was in the pub a few weeks ago, being quizzed about the reasons I don't drink alcohol. I said it was because they whipped out my gallbladder.
So, the doctor that I was talking to said that he reckons the hard water can be responsible for causing gallstones and not to drink it.
Way I see it though, they took my gallbladder, I'm not in Heroes, it's not regenerating, so no more gallstones, what the hell, I like to live on the edge, I'm drinking the water.
