An imagined conversation with someone about tea
Them: How’ve you been?
Me: Good! You?
Them: Good. Do anything fun this summer?
Me: Yeah! I’ve been getting tons of sipdowns in.
Me: (Oblivious to their confusion and discomfort) Yeah, I’m trilled. My cupboard was really getting out of hand, but I’m trying to find the perfect cupboard size. I cant remember the last time my cupboard was so small, its like 20 something teas right now.
Them: Oh, well, I meant-
Me: (talking over them) Plus I’m getting the teas I feel are more appropriate for the summer drunk in the summer! I’m not going to have any out of season teas when the autumn comes around, and I can buy fall tea with total confidence.
Them: (Desperately) Oh. Great, well, good seeing you, I’ve gotta-
Me: (Continuing on) Like Jingle Bells! I know its got a Christmas-y name, but really, its a light and fruity blend, I like it much better in the summer. I got to sip it down today, and I’m excited!
Them: (Edging towards the nearest exit) Well, great, I’ve suddenly got to go as I’ve just remembered my entire life is on fire. Bye!
(They run for it)
Me: (confused) Oh, ok, bye!
