flax-golden tales: always darjeeling

always darjeeling

It’s not that good a trick, really.

There are ooohs and aaahhs when I show someone who hasn’t seen it before, but only the first time.

After the second time they complain that I can’t do it with anything else.

Like it’s not that impressive to draw something in chalk and have it become real once the drawing is complete since I can only do it with teacups.

Even though the teacups materialize with actual tea inside.

But the tea will only be hot if I draw the steam, and I have to draw lots of it in order to obtain proper tea-drinking temperature.

I usually don’t drink it, anyway.

It’s never sweetened, even if I draw sugar cubes.

And it’s always Darjeeling.

No matter how much I wish for Earl Grey.

  1. Wow, this story actually made me smile from ear to ear! Darjeeling is my favourite anyways 🙂

  2. And now I think I’m going to have to make tea, even though it’s late and I have to wake up early. Earl Grey with some ginger cookies from Trader Joe’s…

  3. Seriously, though. It does seem like the things we’re best at do us the least service. Unless you count writing fantastic novels about magical circuses, of course. 😎
