the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Sigg water bottle

UPDATE: A reader named Dawn found it available here. AWESOME. Thanks, Dawn.

I bought this at a market called Capers in Vancouver, and since I threw away (meaning: RECYCLED) the packaging so that I could fit it in my luggage I don’t know exactly which type of Sigg bottle this is. I know it’s a new design and looks remarkably like a flask. I also love the simplicity of the design considering that some Sigg bottles are covered in elaborate, sometimes psychedelic illustrations. Last year I ordered two Sigg bottles from Amazon, and after I waited over two months for them to come back into stock Amazon sent me an email and said they were never coming. And here I just walked into a store in Canada, and BOOM, there it was. Canada, you temptress.

That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
