Vitamin Supplements in a Liquid World

Written by David Leonhardt

Every day, it seems like we are living in an increasingly liquid world. I'm not preaching againstrepparttar evils of alcohol or for a new era of prohibition that will save us from sin and politicians. After all, water is also a liquid, and it rarely inflicts us with either sin or politicians.

But we do expect everything to be excruciatingly easy these days, so liquid isrepparttar 146248 operating system of choice.

No time to eat? Grab a liquid breakfast and run. Why tie a knot inrepparttar 146249 umbilical chord connecting your bed to your desk? If you can find a long enough straw, just start slurping as you rise from bed, and smack your lips torepparttar 146250 last drop as you whiz outrepparttar 146251 front door. Bye.

Remember when soap came in bars? Solid bars? Sorry, I guess I'm showing my age. Now everybody uses liquid soap. Yesterday I reached forrepparttar 146252 soap. No, wait. I reached forrepparttar 146253 hand cream. Or was itrepparttar 146254 soap? But what if it isrepparttar 146255 hand cream? Soap or hand cream? Which is which?

People used to nail siding ontorepparttar 146256 exterior of their homes. Now they just spray on "liquid siding". It comes in three tasty flavors: siding, ceramic and stucco. Yum.

And now they've taken my little vitamin supplement pills and liquefied them, too.

Liquid Vitamins and Minerals?

"Hold on just a minute. How do you know they liquefiedrepparttar 146257 vitamin pills?"

Who said that?

"Are vitamins naturally solid? Or are they naturally liquid?"

Uh. I had to admit that I probably would not recognize a vitamin if I bumped into it inrepparttar 146258 street ... in which case I have a hunch it might be too big to swallow. Say, who is this?

"Where do you think vitamins come from, anyway?"

I always assumed they came fromrepparttar 146259 back ofrepparttar 146260 corner store in a small town in Indiana, but upon reflection, I suspect they might come from oranges and fish and milk. Who are you?

"Don't you think it's pretty hard to stuff a fish into a hard, little pill?"

I suppose The Voice has a point.
