Last week, just as it was dawning on people that the COVID-19 crisis was shaping up to be monumental, I was in a downtown Kingston grocery store.
I noticed a fellow whose cart was groaning under the weight of water. He had five cases of 24 plastic bottles.
I suppose many have come to believe that tap water, treated at public expense, is not good enough. But, for me anyway, the sight of the water hoarder told a different story.
Because I asked Mr. Water why he was buying all that stuff.
“Lots of water in the tap?” I suggested.
