London Calling! Wait, Calling London!

My daughter and I have been arguing about something (in a good natured way) for a while, now, and I realized I can ask my flist, since so many of you are Brits (or Brit adjacent).

SERIOUS POLL OF IMPORTANCE AND SCIENTIFIC MEASURING OMG*

*not in the slightest, and if you take this seriously to the point of believing this is an actual academic poll, I am going to laugh at you. Because I am an idiot, come on, now.

Poll #1916248 Britains of the UK (lol): How do you take your tea?

I only consider it proper tea if:

there is milk added.
42(50.0%)
there is milk nowhere near my cup.
16(19.0%)
there is horse meat added.
3(3.6%)
I am a crazy person that doesn't know what tea is.
1(1.2%)
I don't drink tea (because I'm 'Merikan and we drink FREEDOM).
12(14.3%)
(which tastes like chicken. I MEAN EAGLES.)
10(11.9%)

Even though you said this wasn't serious,

I am taking this seriously. SERIOUS. Ferserius.
37(51.4%)
I don't know how to have fun and be silly.
7(9.7%)
I am going to argue something because you - on the internet - are wrong about something.
9(12.5%)
THERE AREN'T ENOUGH AMERICAN FLAGS IN THIS POST FOR ME TO FEEL COMFORTABLE.
19(26.4%)


Also, it is said daughter's 16th birthday today, and she's awesome, and I love her a whole bunch. And she has a big surprise waiting for her when she comes home from school. MOPPING! I'm kidding. A BABY! No, that's not it, either. THE BOOT! 16 is old enough to be on her own, amirite?

I have all day to be goofy, and I'm happy about that. Also, I had to get ranty in my Tumblr this morning, something I never do, but it's important. And no one cares, I know, but I do, and I feel responsible for this topic (hoarders) and yeah.

BACK TO MY CUP OF TEA. Sans milk. (OMG, the MiL is coming over today and I'm on my "no booze" week and that might need to change.)

I am an unnatural Brit and don't do builders tea. But then this is a soft water area so you don't need the tea to fight with the water... We put a slice of lemon in tea in hard water areas. Lessens the scum. I am looking at you London.

I lived in Scotland for a little while and the water is lovely and soft there, best tea I ever had *pines*

When we lived outwith Scotland, family used to come visit. And bring a large bottle of the soft water so we could have a decent cup of tea!

My husband's in Edinburgh right now, he should absolutely bring me a bottle of water home with him! I don't think he's going to wear 'but I have to come with you next time so I can have a decent cuppa'...

Hahahahahaha.

This is awesome to learn. I have lovely filtered water in my house (which doesn't come easy, because our local water tastes like there is dirt growing in it) so that might be why I've never thought to add to it?

Could be. Certainly didn't develop a love of lemon in my tea till a few visits south. You could serve the water in slices in some places down there!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
