“You’re going to suffer…but you’re going to be…happy about it.”
I don’t believe at all in tea leaves as a means of predicting the future, but stories and books about them (like Harry Potter!) are always fun! I think that predictions like this are a great literary device. And I do like a good cup of tea. I also love that the word “tasseography” comes from the French word for cup, “tasse”. I love when I can recognize a word’s “French-ness.”
I’m going to do a quick and shameless plug here for just a moment. I don’t usually do this, chers lecteurs, but tonight I have tea on the brain because I am doing a “virtual Tea Party” with my friend Ori on Facebook. She is a flight attendant, new mom, and a consultant for a company called Steeped Tea, which sells loose-leaf teas, infusions, and all sorts of accompaniments at home parties. Since my work schedule is so odd, we decided to do one “catalog style” online at FB. It’s true I am addicted to coffee, but tea is delicious too, especially at night, and most especially with a book and a French butter cookie.
Anyway, here’s the link in case there are any tea-drinkers out there who’d like to give it a try. The party part (for me) is only for tonight and tomorrow, but you can contact Ori anytime you want to try some tea. Here’s the link (Tea Party) I will replace that link with Ori’s Consultant page after tomorrow.
Now…I am going to put the kettle on, but I don’t expect to see the grim at the bottom of my cup!
