Red Zinger Tea

Once upon a time, there lived a young bachelor, somewhere in the vast North American prairie. A co-worker was moving, and being an agreeable sort, he volunteered his help. There wasn't a great deal to move, it only took a few hours. As the other people who were helping left, one by one, the young man started to pick up his jacket, which he had removed when he became hot from climbing stairs. "Don't go yet," the co-worker whispered; "stay and we can have some tea...It's Red Zinger!"

The bachelor, who really wasn't much of a tea drinker, stayed, if for no other reason than to try a drink named "Red Zinger".
Finally, everyone was gone, excepting the two co-workers. The tea was made, it was spicy, and warmed and relaxed the young man. When the two put their clothes back on three hours later, they both realized that their office relationship had changed for the better. The tea was good, also.

Moral: Tea for two can get one into more hot water than one originally intended.

You know, to some people tea is still just tea. I may be the only one but that's a different story altogether.

Ironicly enough the tea in my tea story was also red zinger. I wonder if that means anything.

...Munkay- find it in the herbal tea section of your grocery store...
...Brackety- try some and see! Also- something will turn red...
...Little Miss L- I have scientifically studied the "Red Zinger Coincidence Effect" and have concluded the following:
A. Either you and I should have tea together as soon as possible, OR
B. You and I should never have tea together.
C. Red Zinger only works on some.
D. Sometimes things just happen.
E. When in doubt, kick him out.
F. It is probably a good thing that you and I are thirty years and an ocean apart...:-)
