I Did

I've gotten back in to drinking hot tea before bed again. For the last several nights, when I ask Jilda if she wanted hot tea, she's said no.

Tonight when I asked, she decided she wanted some Red Zinger. She went to the office to write in her blog and I put a kettle of water on the stove before coming in to do my update as well.

I was still in the key tapping mode when I heard the kettle begin to whistle, so I went to the kitchen to make the tea.

I alway take honey in my Camomile tea, but I wasn't sure how Jilda takes hers so I called to her from the kitchen -- do you want honey in your Zinger?  A pause....."What? 

More slowly.....Do you want honey in your Zinger. 

Another long pause....... "What? 

But this time there was a change in tone and pacing. I could tell she was trying to decided if I was making some kind of twisted, sexual joke.

I stepped to the living room so she could hear me better and I said slowly -- Do you want honey in your Red Zinger Tea? She laughed out loud.

You won't believe what I thought you were saying. 

But I did.  


  1. I have no idea what she thought you were saying, but I do love me a cup of Red Zinger tea with honey and just a splash or orange juice.

  2. Never had Red Zinger tea. But now I'm going to try it, just to see what tongue twisters might roll off my significant other's mouth. LOL LOVED this story. What fun.

  3. LOL!! Honey is so good for one's Zinger!

    I always have honey with my herb teas - but that's cos I have a sweet tooth!

    Take care
