Went to buy drinking water from the machine. One side of the road (Food Town) has .35/gal, which is where I go all the time. Found out the other side (HEB) has .30/gal. Had 22 bottles, so going to the cheaper side would save me $1.10. Of course, why not? The machine on this side is different, with a window that you have to stick the bottle in. And the window's frame had sharp metal edge on the inside, which I didn't know, of course. Midway through, as I pulled a bottle out, my right hand's 2nd knuckle ran right into the metal edge. Looking at it, damn, it cut right through, and you can clearly see the tendon, but luckily no injury to it. What a dumbass. My trigger finger, too.

Q. Why don’t you get yourself an under counter reverse osmosis filter system and have unlimited pure water on tap. Costco and Sam’s club have the units at a good price and they are easy to install under your kitchen sink.
"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.
