Tea for Two

The expression Tea for Two is a popular one and it's even a song. The idea is that two people are enjoying tea together. The notion of people drinking and eating together is part of every culture. But drinking is especially popular as a group activity, including drinking alcoholic beverages.

Horses feel thirst as soon as they physiologically need water. But not so with humans. We don't perceive thirst until approximately thrity minutes after we need water. This is because humans have evolved to drink together. It is a social thing, and it explains why there are so many bars and pubs in the world. This curious factoid should also encourage you to drink more liquids, especially if you're alone and not receiving the social cues we humans need to keep ourselves hydrated.
