In my latest trip to Del Taco (where the employees greet me by name and with a wave and a smile), I saw Del Taco’s latest money maker idea. This idea involves selling bottled water, which is genius because the majority Californians (everyone but me) will not drink tap water. Personally, I can’t stomach the thought of paying more for water than I do gas. Moving on. Del Taco named this product “Del Agua.” As good as this idea may be, it really didn’t work on me. My knee-jerk reaction to Del Agua was akin to “Mexican water, are you nuts?!” Yes, I realize that their water is probably as clean as Arrowhead, and yes I realize the futility of question the bottled water quality at a restaurant where I should clearly be questioning the quality of the food, and yes I realize (after my initial shock) that this is not really “Mexican Water,” but I am not drinking that water. I am as convinced that this water is a direct route to Montezuma’s Revenge as I am that Japanese scientist have bombed the home of the Loch Ness Monster to ferret out the great beast, who, it turns out, is our friend and ally.
The Japanese scientists DID bomb the home of the Loch Ness Monster. I was assured of it in a report of a current event by a VERY reputable source.
