In the bathroom at Dorothy's Tamales (see previous post), I happily filled my water bottle and moved out to let Carrie take her turn. Thankfully, I hadn't yet sipped the stuff when I heard from the bathroom, "Hey, you didn't fill that up in here, did you?" When I replied that I had, Carrie drew my attention to a sign (of course, NOT placed above the sink). It read:
Now, here's the real question: Do they really mean palatable, or were they trying to say potable? Does it really just taste nasty, or might I have developed some horrid tamale disease and started smelling of chiles or corn or something?
I poured the water out. I guess I'll never know.
