I was reading my friend Granny Sue’s blog the other day and she had a great poem about coffee and tea. I drank a little coffee in college and now and then afterwards but never was I much of a fan of tea. It was not something I could even choke down. I am not sure what really got us started but Emily and I have been drinking a cup of English breakfast tea every evening the last month or so. I have really our tea and we both really look forward to our new tradition. I sort of feel all grown up and stuff. Grownups drink tea in the evenings and grownups talk about important things while they drink their tea, right?
Has anyone else ever noticed that adults are really just old kids? I surely do not feel any more mature or any more prepared to be an adult than I did when I was, oh…13 or so. It’s sort of a funny realization I guess. When I was a kid, I always held adults in high esteem…like it was a special privilege to make it to adulthood. Surely adults got a special membership card or access to a secret library of adultiness. Surely adults must be some special sort of creature, right? I mean, adults drink tea.
