159. The doctor asked, "Now, how much water do you drink a day?" Sheila said, "I'm not a big fan of water. It has no taste. I drink tea and juice." He said, "The sugar in the juice is drying out your vocal cords. Stop drinking the juice, and start drinking eight glasses of water every day." She said, "I can't do that. I have a small bladder. I'll be visiting the bathroom all day long. The kids will start talking. The principal will hear all the talk, and I'll get fired—for drinking water! Besides, water doesn't lubricate vocal cords. It goes right past them and straight into my stomach. Then it goes straight into my bladder, and then I go straight into the bathroom. Water doesn't make a drop of sense." He said, "Who's the doctor here!? Try what I'm telling you, and I'll see you in four weeks." 2.6
