Tea for Two

Little Johnny was left to fix lunch.

When his mother returned with a friend, she noticed that Johnny had already strained the tea.

The two women then sipped their tea happily while having lunch.

"Was it hard finding the tea strainer in the kitchen?" Johnny's mother asked.

"I couldn't find it Ma, so I used the fly swatter," he replied.

His mother nearly fainted, so Johnny hastily added:

"Don't get excited, Ma, I used the old one

In case you don't know what a tea strainer looks like, this is just one style of many.

I'm sure he would have just used a tea bag! I don't drink tea, I can't stand the smell & tea leaves are horrendous. Don't think I've ever bought tea just tea bags. I wish I liked it as people say it's refreshing which coffee is definitely not but I love it. No instant coffee or filter though!
My Mam drank countless cups of tea a day. At home the kettle was always on & you could bet there was always tea in the pot. My friends say I can't be English!
