The Water We Drink & Amphi

Discussion in 'General Amphicar Discussion' started by, Jun 11, 2001.


    When at a restaurant in San Diego we have
    to actually ask for water. I did ask and did
    receive a glass of water. Deep in contemplation
    I pondered the water... the water that which
    gives Amphi his playground. Literally the water
    Amphi frolics in every weekend. Lake Miramar
    is the water supply for a large portion of Northern
    San Diego county, including the cheesy Mexican
    restaurant in which I formulated these thoughts.
    So here before me, a cool refreshing glass of iced
    water, something Amphi and I played in perhaps
    yesterday, perhaps last week, perhaps last month.
    On a molecular level there are undoubtedly trace
    elements of Amphi in this very glass of ice water.
    For that matter, a part of Amphi dwells in every
    glass of ice water on every table in this cheesy
    Mexican restaurant. And in all the iced drinks as
    well - Margaritas, Mai-Tais, and Panty Rippers
    to name a few. I reckon Amphi's molecules are,
    and have been, ingested by my fellow San Diegians
    for the better part of 3 years now. That's pretty
    awesome when you stop to think about it - a part
    of Amphi is in me, in Mermaid, and in pretty much
    everyone we know, assuming they don't drink and
    bath in bottled water all the time. Now I'm thinking
    here could be a great way to boost the Amphicar Club
    funds with the sale of "Amphi Water." No doubt my
    fine finned friends you are all well aware that bottled
    water is more expensive than gasoline and could be
    a tremendous financal & public relations boost for
    our little club. I've even come up with the perfect
    sales slogan...

    Are you ready?

    Okay, here it is...

    "Amphi Water - Pure and Straight from the Bilge to You!"

    `64 Turquoise
    San Diego, CA

    PS - Bilgemaster, that was an excellent call on the
    Amphi music - the Talking Heads song "Take me
    to the River" is one of my favorites. Anyone remember
    who did that little beauty "6 Months in a Leaky Boat"?
    That too is a sweet tune - especially if you bilge often!

    "Six Months in a Leaky Boat" is by Split Enz, off the album "Time and Tide,"
    1982. I bought that album brand new, but with the demise of record players,
    and their associated replacement parts, can no longer play it. Too bad.
    Got to find a cassette of it or CD I guess. Good song, though, all of them.
