"Drink More Water or I'll Tell Morwenna" - The Story

Morwenna has been gracious enough to share, in her own words, the story behind the phrase.

At Gulf Wars V, an Atlantian Baron was not staying hydrated, and was refusing all offers of water. Then-Baron Lucien de la Rochelle, who had decided to serve as waterbearer that year, offered him water four times in the course of an hour, with varying degrees of politeness, firmness, and humor. The offer routinely was turned down. Finally, Lucien (in frustration) held out the water bottle one more time and said ‘Drink more water, or I’ll tell Morwenna!’ To his surprise, the Baron took the bottle and downed the whole thing. On his way home, Lucien called me and related the story. I laughed until the tears ran. A few months later, we were retelling the story to someone else and happened to be overheard by a merchant who sold philosophical buttons. The merchant apologized for intruding, but said she thought that comment would make an excellent button. However comma – she’d never made a button with a real person’s name on it and didn’t know if it would sell. I figured that if she could make a few dollars doing so, I was OK with it. So, at War of the Wings that year, she handed me the first button (out of only 13) and I immediately pinned it on my tunic. A few hours later she came running up to me demanding to know what I’d done. ????? Apparently quite a few people saw the button and wanted one of their own. She sold out of them in short order. She had intended to keep one for herself but when Lucien asked to buy one (the last one she had), she felt so bad that she handed over that last button. I don’t know if she ever made any more, or if she still plays in the SCA, but I still have the original button. The comment kind of spread from there. I’ve even heard stories of it being used on people in kingdoms I’ve never been to!
