I was nearly out of sugar – I had maybe a quarter of a cup, and maybe not even that. I planned to go out at some time today and get some more.
Anyway, I started to make a pitcher of iced tea this morning. I steeped the tea bags, dumped in the remaining sugar, added the ice cubes – and then spilled the entire pitcher on my kitchen floor. I’ve just finished mopping.
Guess I’ll have water to drink right now, until I get the chance to go out for that sugar.
Of course, I can never get too upset over spilled tea after listening to one of my all-time favorite comedy routines, “The Tea Totallers,” by Grady Nutt. You need to hunt this down somewhere. It’s a story about a preacher’s family serving a fancy Sunday dinner for a visiting evangelist, and what happens when one of the children knocks over a glass of tea. It’s a wonderful story about what’s really important compared to what we get so worked up about.
Maybe Fitbit will credit me with some “very active minutes” for mopping.
