Andy rescued me. When he came to game night this weekend, he brought me this:
Probably he did this because my heartbreaking story of loss touched him deeply, and he could not bear to leave me in such distress. Either that or he is just a nice person. One of the two.
So now my heartbreak is at an end, and I have a beautiful Payne's mug which I will fill with lovely tea, and I will ALWAYS hold it with BOTH HANDS.
Here's the tea that's in my mug right now. It's full of pu'erh, oolong, ginger, and eleuthero root, all of which are gentle to my angry, vengeful stomach.
I'd love to hear your favorite teas! Let me know in the comments, and I'll give them a try.
