When my mother died a couple of years ago and I was cleaning out the house I found two bottles. Each one labeled “rainwater” and a date from the mid 70s. I of course I had to wonder what the hell this was all about. I thought at the time we had lived in the desert so my mom had collected it from there. I ended up asking my dad and he said it came from the neighbor near my grandmother.
Since then I’ve tried to figure out ways to use said rainwater. I asked my old college professor if they would want it, I majored in geography, he sent me to the lab. The lab didn’t want it and he sent me somewhere else. That place said they would be interested in it, but then I never heard back from them again.
So now I have two mason jars of water sitting in my basement. I have no idea what to do with them. I thought of selling one on eBay, but I’m not sure you can send water through the mail. It might be an interesting auction, but I’m also afraid I’d get idiots bidding up and not paying.
So what do I do with two jars of water? They seemed to be sealed pretty well, my father told me the person who collected it did it every time it rained. I was thinking I would get rid of one and keep the other just to leave my kids. I can see it now, the kids find 70 year old bottles of water, that should be good for a laugh.
