Ask Tom chat recap: Water, water everywhere


Pearl Dive Oyster Palace was one suggestion for a place to splurge on oysters. (Matt McClain/For The Washington Post)

This is a real question. I am not asking to be snarky, argumentative, or to be taken in a negative manner. Why and how can people consume such astronomical amounts of water while dining out at a restaurant? I don't mind refilling even several times because it is my job, but I am just curious. It seems that sometimes people drink more water when they are nervous or bored, i.e.; out with in-laws, first date, proposing, with coworkers rather than a more desired companion. I love Europeans for one reason. They do not overconsume just for the sake of doing it. That goes for water, food, drinks, and whatever else you can think of. Moderation my fellow Americans. Moderation. Help me to help you.


As you can imagine, the general response was fierce.
