Better Living Through Chemistry

I was lucky enough to be tagged to chose this week's Saturday Scavenger Shots word. As you hopefully know, I chose CHEMISTRY. It seemed like one of those words that could go lots of ways, and I think that it has!

My fondest wish would be to focus on my favorite kind of CHEMISTRY...personal CHEMISTRY. That chemical reaction between two people that creates sparks and fire. However, I have virtually no photographic record of such a thing occuring in my life. *sigh*

So then I thought, what have I got to show the people? I decided to just show a couple of examples of CHEMISTRY as it pertains to me on a daily basis.

Some people like to drink bottled water, because they fear the chemicals that might turn up in their tap water. Personally, I tend to believe it all comes from the same place. I call this the CHEMISTRY of reality.

Let us call this the CHEMISTRY of cheese. If you sprinkle nice parmesan cheese on regular Spaghettios the taste is measurably more delicious. And have some apple juice with that...why not?

I don't do so well without some ground coffee beans and hot water. I call it the CHEMISTRY of survival in a cold, cruel world.

I am so glad that the CHEMISTRY between us is good enough for you to stop by my blog. For next week, I will tag...AlienCG...and I, for one, welcome our new Alien overlords.... (^.^)

The comedian Jim Gaffigan makes fun of the nutritional contents written on bottled water: "I'm not chemist, but I have a rough idea of what's in water!"

Very good examples, I almost went with the food and beverage angle. Coffee chemistry is definitely important. :)

Love your angle on chemistry.

I actually thought of posting pictures of old boyfriends and taking about chemistry or the lack thereof.

It felt like messy chemistry, though. Glad you kept it clean and "nutritious."

Good job on the word you chose. Water is the building block of all chemistry.

George Carlin had his angle on bottled water as well..."when did we all become so thirsty that we have to walk around with water all the time?"

AlienCG said...

Ah, wonderful chemistry that quenches our thirst so regularly. Excellent take on your word.

Churlita said...

I love your take on Chemistry. As usual, I still have to do mine, and I'm kind of at a loss. I'm sure I'll think of something.

Tara: haha! I know! Water is water is water to me :-)

Cricket: If not nutritious, at least for clean, I wish my life were a bit dirtier right about now - haha!

Evil-E: That's funny. Glad you liked my take...I liked yours more.

AlienCG: Thank you! The Chemistry of Quench...sounds like the title of a modern novel.

NoRegrets: Thanks :-)

MrsBHW: Glad you liked mine!

Churlita: I know you will think of something chemical that is going on in your life...
