The little girl across the street is having a birthday party on the lawn – it is in turns adorable (They are all in pink! They are all screaming!) and horrifying (They are all in pink! They are all screaming!). I had a Pavlovian response and started craving Marco Polo with cream and sugar – aka Good Bakery Strawberry Shortcake tea – aka my childhood birthday cake tea. This is so good. It is so powerfully nostalgic that I can only have it every now and again lest it break my heart! I can’t stop thinking about my grandparents who are gone, the old neighborhood which is gone…Gah! Who would imagine a mere cup of tea could send you off like this!!!
