Big gray pipes hung over the studio, all labeled “Domestic Water” in blocky stenciled letters. You see, nondomestic water is full of kelp and krill and hungry worms invisible to the naked eye that, when swallowed, will burrow through the stomach lining into the bloodstream and ride straight to the heart.

But the parasites aren’t what needs to be worried about. It’s the feral water itself that will drown you, dissolve you, and take the next pipe toward its next victim. That’s why we ensure all our water is domestic and label it as such.

Don’t touch the unlabeled pipes.

    You've made me scared of a leek I just discovered. :-))
