My Cup Of TEA

In the vicinity of three munchkins, T, E and A, one can’t help but smile and laugh and be merry. Nothing else matters. The world could be ending but all you’d be concerned about would be to finish your game of tag with them.

10, 5 and 2.5 years old, they are also at the perfect mathematical age which works perfectly for one’s OCD.

They are certainly my cup of tea,

It’s a coincidence that it happens to be my favorite beverage. Or is it?

Try Again

Today, my tea bag told me Try Again.

Sure, sure. I should try again. I think you’re ri- wait a minute!

Aren’t you overly-optimistic, Mr.Tea-Bag? You are going to be used, just once, and then thrown in the bin. You can’t even try again yourself. Even if you wanted to. And you’re telling me to do so?

Or wait. Is that why are you telling me to do so?

You know, I wouldn’t be here, albeit barely hanging on, if I had already given up. So I am trying it. Let’s just keep it between you, me and the bin.

A Cup Of Tea

A cup of fresh, hot tea. The perfect companion, both in your solitude or when you have to entertain.

“There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be much diminished by a nice cup of tea.”

~Bernard-Paul Heroux

And everything is AWFUL if you don’t get your cup of morning tea. All because there is an electrical outage or someone forgets to flick a switch. I didn’t think either of these is too complicated a task to do.

“Tea is instant wisdom – just add water!” 

~Astrid Alauda

See? Tea = wisdom! If only you drank tea, then you’d be wiser and wise enough to know, you know. Is that too much to ask?

Tea is drunk to forget the din of the world.”

~T’ien Yiheng

But what is a girl to do if there is no tea?

This means only one thing: the end is nigh upon us.
