I like a nice cup of tea in the morning
For the start of the day you see
And at half past eleven
For my idea of heaven
Is a nice cup of tea
I like a nice cup of tea with my dinner
I like a nice cup of tea with my tea
And when it's time for bed
There's something to be said
For a nice cup of tea

If only... Wouldn't it be nice if such a simple thing as a cup of tea could make your day!? Imagine, you go the cupboard and find no tea. You're broken hearted and start thinking about preferred methods of suicide. Then you have an idea! You go down to your local corner shop and buy more tea. Your broken heart is mended and you feel on top of the world.

If only... Your boyfriend of many years walks out on you. You couldn't care less.

I think if I had three wishes, one of them would be that all the important things in life become trivial and the trivia is all-important.

I think I'd like to live in a topsy-turvy world.

My best friend dies in a horrific car crash and I don't even care.

I lose a felt-tip pen. I'm broken hearted and inconsolable. I can't stop crying. Someone comes in with a new felt-tip pen. I wasn't inconsolable after all. I feel fine again.

Milk and sugar?

Just milk.

So, Minge, it occurs to me that I don't know what you do professionally but I would guess, based on the coherency of your posts, that you're a writer. Yes?

Minge said...

Me? A writer? You've got to be kidding. Though that is a beautiful comment and compliment. If only you knew why.

Thanks, Brian.

It must be the English/Irish in me but I LOVE a good cup of tea, with milk and 2 cubes of sugar. It seems that a good cup of tea solves all of life's problems... :)
