Here’s a cup on me

Is filling up a cup of water from your tap free?

On the one hand, no:

Our monthly water bill for 6,000 gallons comes in at just under $100.

Some fraction of that is for drinking, right?

At that rate, filling a gallon jug at the start of the day will “lighten my pocket” by $0.016,

Or in coinage, just around 2¢.

In comparison, throwing back a single cup on the spot, say, to quench my thirst on one of Florida’s hot and humid days, will run my bill up by $0.001.

That’s a price that would leave me scratching my head how to pay:

Anything under a penny is pretty much as good as “free.”
