Dawg, that reminds me of my cousin. She would invariably take her last beer to bed with her after a party or get-together at our house. I was always like are you really going to wake up in the middle of the night and finish that beer? Sometimes she did! Tough girl.

Wow, I thought everyone had water by the bed.

But, a glass? That's crazy talk. It's got to be a water bottle so you can reach out to where it's always kept, and drink without moving your head.
Cmon, Al. Still way too much work! You should be wearing your Camelbak to bed!

I usually keep a glass of water by my bed I don't always drink it. It seems like the nights that I forget is when I wake up thirsty in the middle of the night.

We each have one of those sports bottles next to the bed. With five cats an open class is courting disaster.

Well, I don't, but I'm 68 and I do have to get up every 4 hours to pee (have Benign Prostate Hyperplasia), but I always drink a bunch when I do go to pee (there being a water faucet in proximity to the toilet), so I've no need to keep water at bedside. I once thought drinking less water in the evening would reduce the need to get up to pee, but I've decided it really doesn't work like that. With less water, I still have to get up, but I just don't pee as much. It's a pointless strategy.

No one needs to convince me of the dangers of dehydration. I watched how this affected my mother when she was very old, and it was terrible. I'm going to be drinking more and more water.
