A cup of tea

Post by Erik_Kowal » Fri Dec 16, 2011 10:29 am

One day my mother was out running errands, and my dad was in charge.

I was maybe two and a half years old. Someone had recently given me a little toy tea set as a gift, and it was one of my favorite toys.

Daddy was in the living room engrossed in the evening news when I brought him a little cup of 'tea', which was actually just water. After he had drunk several cups and given me lots of praise for making such yummy tea, my mom returned home.

My dad made her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of tea, because it was "just the cutest thing!" Mom waited, and sure enough, here I came padding down the hall with a cup of tea for Daddy. She watched him raise the cup to his lips, tip it up and drain it.

At that point she asked him, "'Did it ever occur to you that the only place she can reach to get water is the toilet?"
