out of context

out of context Posted by Picasa

This container of foil-sealed water was acquired on a recent plane ride. My wife held on to it thinking she might want to drink it while laying over at the airport, waiting for her next flight. Instead, it found its way home, to our kitchen, where it has been now for several days.

The fact that the container remains in limbo highlights the fact we don't know what to do with it. The water is at once perfectly good and perfectly useless. In the context of our kitchen we don't need the water. How to put it to good use now that we aren't on a plane? Add it to the earthquake emergency reserves? Sadly, the "natural spring water" is set to "expire" in a couple of weeks. That would be a terrible waste.
