The Removal of Said Tea-Maid

So ironically, the morning after I wrote a splendiferous report concerning my tea maid, she failed to make me tea.  And the funniest part is that she was in the kitchen the whole time making pancakes and she said she didn’t know I wanted tea.  I always want tea in the morning.

I had no other choice but to instate a new tea maid, but of the less maidenly sort.  When I asked Emmi last night, "Soooo, you do plan on getting up at 5 and making my tea while I’m the shower, yes?" and she groaned, "Can Bobo do it?"  I had my doubts, but Bo stepped up to the challenge on the condition that I let him sleep by my door.

When my alarm went off this morning after a night of awfully light sleeping, and I mean that in two ways since it was a full moon and there was a light in the dining room for a new chickie, I was actually angry that I was alive and someone had the nerve to invent 5 o’clock in the morning.  So I woke up my tea-knight and reminded him of his adventure.  He mumbled something about flaming azaleas and I knew I wouldn’t get my tea that morning.

But lo and behold.  Somehow my little knight is very chipper during the early morning hours.  When I came out of the bathroom,  not only did I have a cup of tea sitting on the table, complete with a napkin, but a plate of "breakfast".  Two leftover pieces of pepperoni pizza, which were unevenly heated.  Funky.  Halfway through it he saw a piece of pineapple on the plate and said, "Oh, I see I didn’t conceal the fact that that was Hawaiian very well.  I remembered that you don’t like pineapple on your pizza and I picked them all off for you. <grin><grin>"  Disturbing.

When I had six minutes before I had to leave, he announced that he was going to read the Bible to me.  He ran and got it and then proceeded to read James 4 to me in a very speedy manner.  Before I left I went to give him a hug and then I almost cried because he’s getting taller and his head doesn’t rest gently under my chin anymore.  It practically comes to my nose.  That’s not right.

Notice how I wrote "tea" in practically every sentence?  Ok, time to sign off — I need a cup of tea before bed.

    you are VERY lucky to have such sweet siblings. I wish someone would make ME a cup of tea every morning… or actually, in my case, a cup of coffee.

  3. Hi, Coie!

    Wow I wish my brother would do that for me. Except I would just want him to make my breakfast. The only tea we have right now that I like is Chamomile.

    Have a good day!

  10. As a mom of girls who are rapidly getting too tall to have my chin rest on their heads, and a boy (or two) who are rapidly out growing them, I appreciated this very much. What a lovely tribute to a pineapple pickin’ kid. Well said.

    And really tea in the morning is an absolute necessity.
