Here’s the scene: You have just scarfed down a massive meal complete with turkey, stuffing, sweet potato pie, and any number of starchy, salty, and generally delicious sides. Then you flop on the couch to watch football during that tryptophan-induced, comatose state that teeters on the edge of consciousness. Soon after, you want to hype yourself up for an evening (or very early morning) of Black Friday shopping, but you can’t shake the coma.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Third Wave Water!
