You make a cup of tea and feel like it's a mini BIAB.

You refer to garnish on your food as a "flameout addition".

Walking down the street you smell some marijuana and think "Hey that smells like hops..."

You're rinsing the dog shampoo off of your dog and you feel like you're sparging.

...A line forms behind at Wal-Mart while you're filling up 20 gallons of RO water at the filling station.

I get the strangest looks at Kroger walking in with 2, 3, or 4 5 gallon empty bottles, and stranger looks while filling 2 at a time. Love that store, all the others only have room for 1 bottle at a time, even if 2 spigots

Yeah. My Walmart has a terrible design flaw. Two spigots but can't fit two 5 gallon jugs in.

The stores I buy from (with low TDS water) have only one spigot on their machines, so customers really love me. I can fill 10 gallons in just under 5 minutes. Not much consolation for the people behind me, though.  ;D

Yeah, dont think I have had anyone waiting on me, just odd looks as people passed through the produce section. And dont even mention the employees coming out of the stock room right next to the machine

...you check the extended weather forecast to see if you're okay to brew the lager that you have planned.
