Episode XII: Ó Bottle

Episode XII: Ó Bottle

///

¡Ooohhh! The first reaction will be of surprise: in a risky demonstration, the bottle falls to the floor from the height of a table ... and it does not break, and it is made of glass; Well, it's really borosilicate, a kind of glass very resistant. Ó! This is the name, with the fourth vowel in capital letters and with a accent, perhaps a game with the French word (eau) which means "water" and which is pronounced only with an "o" aspirated, very short. Oh la lá! The bottle Ó has a screw cap that avoid spills (something very valued by the clumsy that always spills on the shirt) and comes with handle grip. It is sheltered with a non-slip silicone sleeve and has a very wide peak, ideal for receiving the liquid in spurts just when choking or fatigue appears. It is ideal for the gym or the run because it holds up almost any accidental fall and that it is said that "it is tough" ends up being a good omen for the amateur athlete, the one who demands resistance when the dumbbells seem to triple their weight in lead or the kilometers advance slower than a turtle with rheumatism. That silicone sleeve can be blue or pink or yellow or green, among other colors, and so all the bottles, placed side by side in the cupboard or the refrigerator, form a rainbow like the one that appears after the rain: its range of tones discusses what we were taught about water (which is colorless, odorless, insipid) and gives each person the possibility to choose which color they want to take. An experienced seller, although not very original, may say that the Ó bottle is ideal for the lady's wallet or the knight's pocket: in our eternal hurry as walkers of a city with long blocks, it accompanies us on the adventure of going out to the street and with the softness that it offers to the touch invites us to caress it. On the way, we accelerate a drink and continue on our way. In thirst or fatigue, it refreshes us and the most expressive of us do not have modesty in exclaiming a sonorous: "Aaahhh!".
