bawa


bawa
Bottled water.
'Wa' came originally from some half-remembered scene in a movie about Helen Keller, where she stuck her hand under a running faucet and uttered her first word: WwwaaAAaaaaAAAAhh!
'Bawa' was coined to differentiate between bottled water and plain ole water - which is, of course, 'tapwa'.

Thirsty? We've got ice tea, tang, or bawa.
