...so I've got my morning cuppa green tea at my elbow, and I'm browsing headlines and--
Gee, that tea's strong this morning.
...and I read a couple of blogs and check out the email and--
Gee, that tea's really strong.
Monday was grocery day and Himself got groceries this week. I was nearly out of green tea (he won't touch the stuff, but he understands my basic need for it) and put it on the list. I just assumed (and you know where ASSume gets you) that he'd know what brand.
I meandered out to the kitchen to check the box, figuring it would be generic or something and stronger than I'm used to. Nope. Same brand I always buy.
Back to my office. Back to surfing--
Gee, that tea is REALLY strong.
Only at this point do I look into the mug. There, resting on the bottom like a small island surrounded by a now-quite-dark sea, is the teabag I'd forgotten to discard.
How many times in life, confronted with what seems to be a problem, do we seek solutions high and low, going through all kinds of perambulations, only to discover there's a simple solution right before us?
Note to self: check for soggy teabags in the cup before setting up expeditions to climb Everest...
Have a good 'un, Sparklers - carpe diem!
