So, my wonderful eldest son made me the most perfect cup of tea the other day.
I was just about to tuck in to it when out of the corner of my eye, I saw him wiping up the countertop where he had spilt a little of the said liquid. I couldn’t believe it when I saw he was wiping it up with one of my good tea towels.
Aargh, I shot up and said, what are you doing . . . go and get a dishcloth from the sink!! He looked at me very bewildered and responded, that he was using the tea towel.
I said you don’t use those for cleaning up messes to which he said, “Then, why is it called a TEA towel?”
I was speechless and couldn’t think of a smart ass comeback to my precocious 11 year old so I left the room to go and enjoy my cuppa!!
