Tea. Iced tea, green tea, peppermint tea. There is a tea to fit every person. Well, every person except the ones that don't like tea. I've always found myself to be more of a coffee person. I wake up, pour my daily cup and feel the caffeine rush through my veins, bringing my mind to life. The unhealthy cup of joe I consume may not clear my sinuses or help me get better when I am sick, but it sure does help me get through my day on barely any sleep.
I tried having a tea party once a couple months ago with Columbae Marie because she was convinced it wasn't a question of whether or not I like tea it's that I haven't found the right tea. But, I couldn't find one I liked. I tried at least 5, and I've basically given up on finding my sickness remedy. Who knows, maybe there really is a tea out there designed specially for my taste buds, but I don't think I'll find it any time soon. In the meantime, however, our generation got me thinking about tea in a different sense. We love making up terms like "low key", "throw shade", "Netflix and Chill", and my personal favorite " that's the tea". Now, I myself tend to live under a rock sometimes, so for all you unexposed people like me, you might wonder: "What's the tea?" Well, the tea is gossip. If you spill tea like you spill beans or let the cat out of the bag, you are giving new information to people. I, myself love hearing information. Blame my nerdy side that loves learning, my nosy side that can't stay in my own business, or my story-loving side that loves a good drama show or chick-flick. The point is, I flock to tea as much as the stereotypical hairdresser. Should I have considered that profession? Lol.
So why is it that our generation loves playing Webster's dictionary? The word "sick" started meaning cool, and so did "dope." For anyone outside of our generation, we make it a struggle to keep up with all our new sayings. I hear that "bread" is the new thing back home? And I don't mean the saying "the best thing since sliced bread," I mean "It's time to get that bread." Weird. But, I think that's why. We want a secret lingo that older people don't understand, like when kids try learning piglatin. And one, day our kids will be making words that will sound absurd to us. I wonder which of us will try to keep up and stay "cool." List your guesses in the comments! Missed you guys! Feels good to be back.
Much love from hails ;)
