I recently started drinking a lot of mountain dew. I drink it on the long drive to school in the morning, at lunch, etc. Bottom line: I drink it WAY more than I drink water. Lately I've also noticed I get a really crappy sound sometimes in the upper register. It sounds like a fuzzy sound to the max, to the point where nothing comes out. I'm suspecting the Mountain Dew is drying out my lips and creating response issues. Could this be happening? I'm assuming I should switch to water, but is there anything, well, less boring? Haha. I just don't want to be dehydrated and I want to know what you guys do that works. I used to use Burts Bees, but it dried my lips out so now I use Chopsaver. Any tips?
