I know, two posts from me today? WHAT IS HAPPENING THE WORLD IS ENDING.
I guest posted over at Ken’s tea blog today. But I can’t reblog it because it’s not WordPress. DAMMIT KEN.
So instead I have to link you. THIS TIME YOU HAVE TO CLICK. It’s totally worth it, and very funny. Not just from me, either. Ken put editorial notes in that made me laugh until I cried, no joke.
It is a very important story about tea, and peer-pressure, and the power of friendship. You life will be FULLER AND RICHER for having read it. OK, I’m totally exaggerating, but it was so much fun to write, I can’t even.
Here, I’ll give you some highlights:
“… any fried fish at TGIFridays due to the food-poisoning incident of 1999. YOU KNOW WHAT YOU DID TGIFRIDAYS.”
“I’m not sure that your tea is supposed to smell like potpourri, but it did. Like floral licorice potpourri. The ingredients list says this tea has a lot of things in it like cinnamon and orange peel and anise and vanilla and cloves and cardamom and licorice. These things are all also present in potpourri, so that’s a little worrisome. Also, it has not escaped my notice there is no tea in this tea.”
“After the water boiled all over the place, I poured it over the teabag. Which floated to the top like Rose’s piece of wood in Titanic. I don’t know if that’s supposed to happen. So I totally smushed it down with a spoon and anchored it. That’s smart, right?”
“I took a sip. It was very hot so I burned my mouth. ALL FOR SCIENCE.”
Are you duly teased? You should be. This is a very good post. Also, Ken totally edited it. I KNOW. Someone EDITED one of my POSTS. I know SOME of you are thinking “Amy, you’ve needed an editor since you started here.” Well, you got your wish. Ken is a very good editor.
Also, there’s a photo of me with crazy eyes and hair and a zombie t-shirt.
Go go go! It’s super-awesome-fun!
