Since I have a B-day comming up in a few months, I made it known I wanted a juicer. Not any juicer, a nice powerfull one. I love juice, not that sugary crap you get at the store, wholesome fresh squeezed juice. But, seeing that they can get a tad expensive and with money being tight right now, I only thought it to be prudent to offer up an alternative to the wife for a present idea.
One of my other loves is Tea. Since suffering from constant acid reflux years ago, and taking the suggestion of green tea with a tad bit of honey, I haven't had a single episode of acid reflux since. I became a believer in Tea. After going the store bought route of teas, which is kinda powdered tea actually, I fell in love with Dragon well green tea, not that imitation crap, the real deal from China, loseleaf, pan fried. So the wife asked me recently if the juicer was my final request. I said all things considered, I'm going to give you an alternative. She says whats that ?
I said a teapot. Not any teapot mind you, one made of clay,from China. She looked at me as if I lost my frickin' mind. You sure ?....she says....a teapot....really ? I said yeah, a teapot. Took a shower, came out and I'm standing infront of the mirror thinking about what I just asked her for. As I stared into the mirror, I talk to myself sometimes and this time was no different,, out loud, not intending to be heard. "Your a pussy" I said to myself, out loud mind you, "What man askes his wife for a frickin' teapot ?" "Not audio gear, a chainsaw, stuff for the car, but a frickin' teapot ?"
At that point all I heard was laughter comming from the bedroom, as I realized I said that out loud. " Well, am I right or what?" I said. After she stopped laughing, she said "Thats why I married you, your not a typical man." I said "Granted....but a teapot ?, I just asked you for a teapot". I need to get my ass out of the house more, hang out with some audio lovin', gun toten', tabacco chewin' men.
That aside, what teas do you guys like ? That is if your man enough to admit it. I'm diggin' the greens of coarse with white tea and Blacks, from India not too far behind.
