    @beenthere2: I’ve had servers bring me the pitcher too.  The worst was when she brought me the pitcher and then I saw her take individual glasses of waters to tables, like that was her only pitcher, but supplying the whole restaurant with water was easier than just supplying me with water.  It wasn’t crowded, but still.

    Both my husband and I drink throughout the meal.  I never realized that a lot of people don’t. 

    I “need” a drink when I eat so bad, that if  my drink (usually water, sometimes iced tea) runs out during a restaurant meal, I will stop eating altogether until it is refilled.

    @Mrs.tobe: Haha yeah. I’m one of those people who will continuously drink water if it is in front of me, but if I don’t put it right in front of me I’ll forget to drink ALL day.

    Is it weird that I have no idea?  I mean, I always have a glass/bottle of water with me when I eat, but I don’t know if I drink? LOL! I will post back after lunch ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Fiance and I are both a little insane when it comes to liquids. He is always thirsty because he’s constantly in the gym, and I just like to always have something to drink! I have a 24oz aluminum water bottle that follows me from my bedside in the morning, in my car to work, to my desk, back in my car, then around the house until I go to bed and set it down again. He drinks huge amouts of liquids with meals and so do I. You’re not crazy ๐Ÿ˜€

    I don’t drink while I’m eating (unless I’m eating something really spicy). I drink before and after, but while I’m eating I don’t drink anything.

    Darling Husband is the complete opposite.  He downs his drink while he’s eating (and before and after – he drinks so much liquid when we’re out) and then usually starts drinking mine because the waiters don’t get him refills quick enough to his liking!

    @Mrs.KMM: Kind of funny, on our first date, we went to Outback.  Darling Husband drank SEVEN glasses of soda.  I thought he was crazy.  LOL.

    @Linz1231: SEVEN!?!  I think that might beat my DH!  Whenever our crazy WB meet-up happens, we should bring our DH’s together, let them discuss baseball and see who can drink the most during their meal.

    So funny you’re asking this! 

    I USED to be a meal sipper.  However the guy i was dating 2 bf’s prior to Fiance was a total nut job.  He HATED that I did that and fussed at me and said that was why I never got full – because I filled up on the drink.  So he actually conditioned me to NOT do it.  I was really scared to do it because he got so upset!!! 

    So now, I still just wait until I’m done eating!  I absolutely HATE that I do that, but I just can’t stop.

    I don’t like drinking while I eat.  I can drink a whole glass of something before or after.  The only time this is an exception is if I’m drinking wine – and, even then, I’ll only take a couple sips – but it’s pretty rare.

    Darling Husband drinks while he eats – he thinks my method is odd. ๐Ÿ™‚
