Cotto Tea

We got home last night from Lubbock, TX, the mecca of Texas and had to wait around a little while for my cousin Kristy to bring my dogs home. While we waited, I poured us a couple of glasses of Iced Tea that I had made a few days ago and we sat down to watch some TV we had taped. I only tell you this because I need you to know that last night I drank Iced Tea.

Why is this important? This morning I was eating breakfast and decided to clean up the kitchen a little bit. We drank all of the tea last night so I had left it out overnight and wanted to rinse it out. I lifted the lid and looked inside of it and what did I find? Well, you know how when you eat Salami and you have to pull that ring of skin off of the edge because it’s like plastic or something? I always pull those off when I make a sandwich and throw it away. A couple of days ago, I was in a hurry and didn’t have a bag in the trash so I threw the two meat rings in the empty tea pitcher.

Since I was working a 2 a.m. shift last Friday, I made tea by boiling water in a cup and pouring the tea into the pitcher and filled it up. All without looking into the pitcher! By now you have figured out that the tea we drank last night had a special flavor to it. Diana, I didn’t want to tell you this when I found out because I was afraid you might hit me so if you are reading this, I’m sorry. But at least you didn’t finish your drink last night.

Ah!

This comment doesn't have anything to do with your post, though that is one of the grossest things I have heard in awhile, but your profile picture that you say is a lilly pad looks more like a fortune cookie or a sand dollar...
