I donated several cases of water that I had in my garage to a local race that is being run on
Veterans Day. I also decided to keep a few bottles for myself because I bought them.

I also had an unfortunate injury recently, but am okay but the doctor said to stay hydrated. I realized after the first bottle that I drank that my thirst wasn't quenching. I realized after the second bottle (still thirsty) that something was really wrong. Upon closer inspection, I realized that this water expired in September!

I am distraught knowing that these runners will not receive proper hydration due to my error, but I am too embarassed to go get my defective water. I was thinking of just taking it back without telling ( my neighbor is the organizer and he keeps it in a tent. I can go steal it back while he sleeps, as he sleeps on a tight schedule)

I need insight in how to best handle this blunder.

The label may say it's expired, but there is nothing wrong with the water. In any case, even if the water was bad, it would still quench thirst. It would just taste weird. The expiration date is only there because manufacturers are required to put a date on food and drink items. It doesn't actually go bad. At least not for a very long time. Unless you leave it in the car and the sun is shining on it and it heats up. In that case, the water doesn't actually go bad, the plastic starts to break down and release toxins into the water that can cause cancer. But the water itself doesn't spoil. Don't worry about it, I'm sure it's fine. You were probably just super thirsty.

Also, if you are on pain meds or antibiotics, they can make you feel thirsty all the time, and that could be why the water wasn't quenching your thirst.
