Today we go to CVS to pick up my “Whoa there, Hoss!” medication*. But first we need to get there. What happens along the way? Not much. Not much except this sad, droopy tree wilting from the heat. .

Long ago Somebody came up with the idea of taking a couple hydrogen atoms and an atom of oxygen, connected* them and *POOF!* it became a water molecule.
