Tragic scenes on this Monday morning mourning.
A crowd of teary onlookers have gathered around the bin on Level 2 of the Law Library (which is really level 1, like c'mon) to mourn the passing of the S'well bottle once happily owned by third-year Business/Law student, Eliza Doyle.
Things were going pretty, ah, swell, in their happy relationship, with Eliza filling her bottle with chilled goodness and the bottle in turn keeping it cool for a nearly-unbelievable 12 hours.
That is, until S'well fell from her bag as she was getting off the bus. There was a sickening ding and angels did sing and shocked cries did fling from the tongue of the young woman. She quickly realised that the fall had left a dent in the bottom making it unable to stand up properly without spilling some of its water wet wet cool goodness.
With that, there was no returning.
A quick funeral and farewell to the S'well saw it being deposited in the bin with all those annoyingly non-recycled Boost juice and Merlos cups.
"It's how he would have wanted to go," said Eliza of her anthropomorphised bottle with a bunch of fronds painted delicately on its outside.
"It's going to take a while to get over this... I might just have a few flings with some plastic Pump bottles, being with those is pretty short lived".
