Captain Obvious does lunch

IMG_20171227_144613_520.jpgCaptain Obvious, at your service once again. Today I report on a mystery that has confounded me for well over 15 minutes.

It all started after my last mission.

I was quite hungry and my rations had been depleted by the earthworm incident, which is one tale that is too horrifying to tell. I had entered a fast food establishment, which was not living up to the name since it took ten minutes for me to receive my food.

While I waited impatiently, I took my colorful cup to the drink dispenser. Having sworn off soft drinks, because they make my tummy hurt, I perused the choices for something without enough sugar to send me into immediate shock. I was pleasantly surprised to find water as one of the choices. I reached for the button when I noticed there was a secondary choice underneath water which said, ‘water only’. This gave me immediate pause. Was the other water free of dangerous water that I nearly consumed in my ignorance? Does the ‘water only’ have all the essential nutrients of the regular water? Would it be missing some key ingredient of the main water choice?

As I pondered this important decision, people began lining up behind me, waiting for their drinks. What do I do? Do I raise the alarm and warn these people about the potential choice between these competing waters? Obviously on water company was better funded as they had the edge on advertising with the larger logo. But did that mean that the less popular choice was the right one? What if there was some cut-rate system they used to make their water cheaper and couldn’t afford

What do I do? Do I raise the alarm and warn these people about the potential choice between these competing waters? Obviously, one water company was better funded as they had the edge on advertising with the larger logo. But did that mean that the less popular choice was the right one? What if there was some cut-rate system they used to make their water cheaper and couldn’t afford advertising like the bigger company?

In the midst of my turmoil, my order number was called.

Sweat rolled down my cheek as I sold out and pressed my cup against the lever sending water streaming into my cup. As I walked away, I could hear the angry sighs of the people behind me. Were they disappointed in my choice? Did they lose a little confidence in their captain knowing that he had chose the big water company instead of helping out the little guy?

I picked up my bag of deep fried food and headed back out into the world to right some injustice, but all the while, I kept a wary eye on my water.
