Habits are going to screw you or save you.
We are in Mexico and my husband Soren is standing at the sink, and he KNOWS you don’t use tap water in Mexico to brush your teeth. So he’s standing there, with his toothbrush in one hand and puts the tooth paste on it, then reaches for the sink, turns it on, then stops because duh Mexico water. So then turns it off, opens the bottled water, pours it over his toothpaste tooth brush, brushes his teeth and then 30 seconds later, reaches and turns on the tap to rinse, then stops because duh Mexico water. Pours the bottles water on his toothbrush to wash it off, then reaches for the tap AGAIN to get water to rinse his mouth! And then starts to crack up and then finally, uses the bottled water for time #3 because BIG DUH, Mexico water.
