Put a sip on it

Now that the World Cup is over, I need to detoxify with some healthy drinks to get some of those toxins out of my system. Depends on what healthy drinks are in your lexicon.

Now that the World Cup is over, I need to detoxify with some healthy drinks to get some of those toxins out of my system.

Depends on what healthy drinks are in your lexicon.

Well, veggie juices for a start, nothing like a shot of lauki juice straight to your bloodstream in the morning to keep you fighting fit the whole day.

It might be a fight to the finish if you go by the example of the poor man who was detoxified forever after drinking the bitter draught.

One bitter experience does not a whole toxicology report make. Anyway, I reckon that Baba Ramdev who swears by a swig of karela and lauki juice knows his onions.

For goodness sake, nothing that bitter, green or vile could ever make you healthy. And as for Ramdev, all that standing on his head must have gone to his head.

I don’t want to run up huge bills with doctors, I’ll juice it my way.

You’ll probably pay more for the veggies than a strip of tablets and become a sourpuss to boot.

Look at you, I suppose you think that a daily shot of tequila is enough to keep the doctor away.

Why not, it is but the juice of cactus, as vodka is of potatoes and gin of juniper berries. Only I’m having a lot more fun throwing them down the hatch than you are.

Do say: I’ll squeeze through.

Don’t say: Leave out the juicy bits.
