water

The funny thing about water is that we don’t really think about it until we’re thirsty. Our minds are on other things—sports, taxes, Coca-Cola, the weather. But our bodies? They think about water more than we could ever comprehend. And how could they not? Almost all life functions rely on it, which explains why about 65% of the human body is composed of it.
