Spring Cleaning (Day 3 of 5)

Years overdue, I am undertaking a water fast – nothing but water – for 5 days this week, Monday to Friday.

As noted in yesterday’s post (see Day 2, supra), most/many Korean homes have water filtration systems/dispensers.

We got a newfangled one by LG when we returned to Korea last year and moved into our new place.  Feeding off the pipe supplying the sink tap, the device supplies perfectly clean, delicious cold/room temp/hot water in increments of 120 ml, 500 ml, 1000 ml, and infinity.

I should’ve included the water in the taste test yesterday.  Granted, it’s not a bottled mineral water but would’ve been interesting as a wild card.

The nozzle automatically extends down to meet the height of whatever receptacle is placed underneath, lest the water splash a bit – such a first world thing.

At the end of Day 3, I’m feeling okay.  Definitely tired, in bed by 2000.  Surprisingly not very hungry – in previous experiences, Day 3 is usually the worst for hunger (by Day 4, the body adapts, and the hunger pangs dissipate).
