I'm an idiot
The past few days I've been fighting dehydration, and I also seem to be, well, pissing a lot. I couldn't figure it out.

Until just this moment while I was working and having a little snack... of Craisins. You know, dried cranberries. While I was in CA I was looking for something sweet to snack on and I picked up a big bag of Craisins. When that ran out a couple of days before the end of the trip I picked up another, and I was just finishing that bag when I finally realized what the heck I was doing. I've been chowing down on a diuretic for the past week. Duh. (And I'm already on one as part of my blood pressure treatment.)

I'm an idiot sometimes.

well, at least you won't get a urinary tract infection!

I had no idea cranberries were a diuretic. Huh.

Oh yeah, cranberries are hardcore diuretics. They'll clean you out real good. Remember h talking about working at the Ocean Spray info center and talking to lots of old dudes about their bladder infections and stuff?

We once came up with the most pee-tastic beverage we could think of-- carbonated cranberry booze with caffeine. FOOSH.
