You have to drink!1In the Boston Marathon I ran for a while and then walked slower than the slowest. An old man grabbed me by the shoulder and said, “Your heart is working very hard. You have to drink!”
I said, “No, thank you.”
But he said, “You have to!” and he forced me to drink.
Because I was tired, he sympathised with me.
