Fruit of the Clouds

Andrea picked up this great one from the cellestial tea pack insert:
"Between true friends even water drunk together is sweet enough"
I like it...not just because it is a zimbabwean proverb, but also because it is aligned with one of my other little clinton-isms as my family called them 'fruit of the clouds' - that's my term for umoya, amanzi, panee, aqua, agua, eau, wasser, 水, H2O, water!

When in the company of spanish speakers (including filipino) I will often refer to it as agua pura, from the mexican potable water campaign in the mid 1970's
