"cup of tea"
> One day my mother was out and my dad was in charge of me.
> I was maybe 2 1/2 years old. Someone had given me a little
> 'tea set' as a gift and it was one of my favorite toys.
> Daddy was in the living room en grossed in the evening news
> when I brought Daddy a little cup of 'tea', which was just
> water. After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such
> yummy tea, my Mom came home.
> My Dad made her wait in the living room to watch me bring
> him a cup of tea, because it was 'just the cutest thing!' My
> Mom waited, and sure enough, here I come down the hall with
> a cup of tea for Daddy and she watches him drink it up.
> Then she says, (as only a mother would know... :)
> 'Did it ever occur to you that the only place she can reach
> to get water is the toilet?
