Like Water for Broccoli

Fountain

Back in the US as of noon-ish today.  And among the first two USA thrills: (1) drinking from a water fountain* and (2) raw green vegetables (broccoli, spinach, spring mix and sprouts) at a Jason's Deli salad bar.

*what do you call these things: water fountain? drinking fountain? bubbler?  And were your grade school and high school fountains like mine -- some with a trickle that made you suck off the metal as if you were a gerbil, and others that blasted your face, hair, shirt, and the hallway if you didn't treat the knob like a caffeinated rattlesnake?

Water fountain. There was a whole thread on this on C1ty-d4ta. Bubbler is apparently a northern term. I would bet drinking fountain hits the deep south.

Yes! And that one kid that would always slap you in the back of the head while you were drinking!
