Tea For Four

Playing tea party is a delicate balance of trying to be polite while being terribly disappointed that it is only pretend food and nothing but air in the fancy cups.

But play I will, when my cousin comes over to visit and gets out the brass tea cups and starts pouring tea and giving me some.

Not just giving, but assisting in lifting the cup to my mouth.

Olive Badger was invited to the party, but she was suspicious of all of it and ran away. I was kind with my clear disinterest after I discovered the cup was empty, and my lack of participation  turned the little guy's attention to Sarah Beagle, who sat there and revealed in all of his attention.

  So, it's tea for two, then?  Sounds good to all involved!
