Today I learned
There are two meanings to ‘Blood is thicker than water’. One is that family will stick up for family. The other is that the phrase is a truncated version of ‘The blood of the covenant is thicker than than water of the womb’. Meaning bonds formed in hard times or battle are stronger than one’s blood family.
The second sounds very middle eastern (like my enemy’s enemy is my friend).
Speaking of water…water closets, that is…I’m currently on four medications, and one of them requires I drink 40 ounces of fruit juice a day. My bladder has never had such a workout!
So, a little ‘TIL’ and a little ‘TMI’.
