Very stout Assam…akin to the kick in the head that comes from waking up and realizing you are the parent of a college freshman. Life moves fast, gang. Choose well.

At any rate, brisk and pungent are good descriptors of this one. I’m a lover of all things stout and malty, but I may have to back off on the leaf or pop in some milk next time.

I live ‘up’ the road from the University and drove by this weekend when moms and dads were there with the kiddies. Soooo funny to see stout dads in shorts looking like tourists in Hawaii trotting about with their arms around the shoulders of 18-19year olds (poor things). What made it all tolerable was that 1. mom and dad have money 2. everyone’s mom and dad looked like they came out of central casting.
Wish I had a bench and popcorn it was so amusing! I loved it! Balding men in shorts with black socks and sneekers with a Colorado State shirt on and camera around their neck…arm around the shoulder of a son or daughter who wants to blend into the pavement with piercings and backpack. Ha Ha Ha!

No university t-shirts, cameras, or socks with sandals here, though I often look like a refugee from Goodwill :)

Bet you don’t. I’m the opposite. I have to edit myself and go older. My granddaughters can borrow my clothes which should tell you something. Yikes. I try not to go too young though.

I’m going back to my second year of college in a few days. My school is too far for my parents to go with work and all, so my mom deals with it by baking me more things than I can possibly eat.

I haven’t figured out what my coping mechanism is yet. (Bonnie, you can be my stylist. The challenge is that you have to make me presentable with what’s already in my closet!)

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
