They Think They’re People

Franny sat slumped at the table with an English muffin and a mug when I came out to get my first glass of water.

“Is that tea?” I said.

“Yeah,” she said, stirring it as it steamed.”I really needed something to wake up this morning. I am sooo tired.” Franny has never been a morning person.

“What kind of tea are you drinking?”

  1. It’s been too long since I’ve read Mal Mots from Franny. Gosh, this is funnnnny.

  2. HA! That reminds me of a conversation with my grandmother where she was talking about how important her morning cup of tea is. And I was like, “What kind is it?” and she was like, “I don’t know; the box is on the counter.
    And I look and it’s SLEEPYTIME TEA. “Uh, Gram? This is Sleepytime Tea.” “So?” “It’s for bedtime…never mind. Enjoy your tea.”
