I see a blue barrel for rainwater.

I am at the cottage in the mountains, and I see it (together with some vegetable beds next to my neighbor's house) through the attic window - the attic being the only place where I can connect to the Internet.

A bottle of... uhh... ostensibly it's lemonade, but really it's mineral water with the distinctive taste of cheap <insert fruit here>-flavoured water.
