Teabags

November 3, 2009

What is it with Jewish women and teabags?  Every time my wife and I go to my parent’s house for dinner they always serve tea after dinner, but they serve it in a communal teapot and don’t increase the number of teabags relative to the number of people who will be drinking tea.  So what you get is one teabag being used to flavor a giant pot of water that will then be distributed amongst ten or so people! Mmmm….hot honey water!  To paraphrase Arrested Development, ‘It’s so moist, but with a smack of honey!’  I understand that my Mom makes tea the same way her Mom makes it, which is a result of having gone through the Great Depression when teabags were scarce blah blah blah…but for the love of god, we live in an age where you can buy 50 teabags for $5, and you’re telling me they can’t splurge on a couple extra tea bags!  They spend more money feeding the dog than they do on preparing the after dinner drink!  The worst part is that whenever we leave my parents house we always go home and fix a cup of tea (one bag PER person) because I’ve now got an unsatisfied hankering for tea thanks to my Mom’s patented tea deprivation treatment.  Someone call the CIA, I think we’ve figured out how to get all those terrorists to talk!  After all, they do love their tea…

WordPress thinks my Mom is Spam!

Is WordPress trying to tell me something?

Is WordPress trying to tell me something?

I was checking out my blog stats when I realized that the number of comments reported does not equal the number of comments posted, so I went into the spam folder to see what had been blocked and found comments from my mother!  Apparently, the wordpress spam filters think my mom is spam!  Do they know something I don’t? Just kidding, Mom, you’re the best, and nutritious too! 🙂
