You love 'em for their cake, I love 'em for their can. A frequent Pee-ers Guide. May 16 2012

I can't tell you how many folks tell me, "I hate water." I get it, I mean I did when I was a teenager but now a crisp delicious glass of water is something I crave. Simply put, water is life. Feed yourself. Here are some interesting facts about water, to encourage you to drink it. I will also list some of my favorite places to pee and also some invaluable NYC "Pee Tips."

The human body, is made up of between 55 and 78 percent water  is in need of constant re-hydration. The skin has to have water to function properly; in fact the human body requires 2 to 3 liters of water per day.

 The skin plays a very important part in the health of the human body. You’ll look younger when your skin is properly hydrated. Water helps to replenish skin tissues, moisturizes skin and increases skin elasticity.

 95 percent of each of our cell is made up of water. It is the water content of your skin cells that determines how moist or supple your skin is.

Signs of Dehydration:
  • Dark Urine: Urine is generally pale yellow to clear when you have sufficient water intake.
  • Dry Skin: Skin is the largest body organ and requires its share of water.
  • Thirst: It is always a good practice to drink more water when your are not thirsty, don’t wait until you're thirsty.
  • Hunger: Most people mistake hunger for the indication to eat more, whereas in actual fact, they may be dehydrated. So before you have your meal, grab a glass of water.
  • Fatigue: Water is a source of energy and gives you a boost in energy. 

Pee Tips:
Walk into any bar/diner like you own the place. Walk towards the back, avoiding eye contact.
Remember: It is the LAW that hotels let you use their bathroom!
 If you are stopped by an employee somewhere, make it to the middle of the establishment and dramatically cry out "I'm gonna be sick!". You'll get your bathroom. Believe me.
