I'm so high maintenance

Greater love hath no man than this: that he follow his wife's anal tea-brewing instructions to the letter.

My husband (to me, while I'm feeding the baby, having been thwarted in my earlier attempt to make myself some tea): I'll make your tea for you. Shall I put some hot water in the glass jug to warm it up before I put the tea in?

Me: No... put some hot water in the green teapot.

My husband: Green teapot, ok.

Me: Then when the water's boiling fill up the glass jug. Then you need to let the water cool for two minutes. Then you put in the tea and let it steep for two minutes.

My husband: ...ok, so what's the green teapot for?

Me: That's for straining the tea into so it doesn't oversteep...

My husband: My god, this is all so much more baroque than I bargained for.

    I did get my tea in the end, and it was lovely :)

    I feel quite normal about my tea practices, you know, until I try and explain them to someone else... :/


Thanks for taking the time to comment... I appreciate it!
