My Glass Is Half Full

Copepod

Copepod

Of microorganisms called copepods and rotifers.  So I suppose I’ve been rotified, because I’ve been drinking the water at the West Hartford home of The Peacock.  This is my choice, because I get thirsty and the MDC says there is no health risk. 

Yeah, the little fellas look gross, but these are blown up pictures.  They don’t call them “micro” for nothing.  And people do eat bugs, you know.

By the way, it’s not really a glass I drink from, but a plastic bottle.  

Rotifer

I keep refilling it until I figure something worse than copepods and rotifiers are growing in it.  Then I toss it, and shell out 75 cents for a fresh bottle that I will refill over and over until…(rinse and repeat).

A guy in Bloomfield discovered these microorganisms in his tap water on Monday.  When I fill a glass with water, I never examine it before I drink it. 

This may be a game changer for some.  Probably not for me.

    Gerry, one word. YOUK. Have a great weekend.

  2. Fluckers? I hope that’s not pronounced like I think it’s pronounced. Oh well. With a name like that, the crickets have to be good.

    And why are they only available in the 48 contiguous states? Maybe the Channel 30 I ( For insect ) Team could get on that one.
