Someone had given me a little ‘tea set’ when I was about two or three years old and it was one of my favorite toys. My Daddy was in the living room engrossed in the evening news when I brought him a little cup of ‘tea’, which was just water.
My mother was out and my dad was watching me. After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my Mom came home and 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!’
So, Mom waited, and sure enough, I toddled up the hall with a cup of tea for Daddy and she watches him drink it up. Then she says, as only a mother would know… ‚ÄúDid it ever occur to you that the only place she can reach to get water is the toilet?‚Äù
