(A customer comes in to discuss care of his elderly, very ill cat. We talk about keeping the cat warm and hydrated.)

Customer: “So, I have this idea… I thought that if I put the cat in a bath, she’d stay warm and not be thirsty.”

Customer: “You mean that if I’m thirsty and I take a bath, I’ll still be thirsty when I get out?”

Me: “Yes, that is what I’m saying.”
