I do try to please, at least on occasion. You're very welcome!

Thanks for reviewing my thing. I'm pleasantly surprised you didn't hate it.


A few years ago, I was visiting some friends in New York City. While there, one of them took me and a couple other guys to Chinatown, to show us some of the hidden gems she'd found when she lived there. At one point, she brought us to a dumpling restaurant, ordered for us all, and a few moments later, four cups of tea were sitting in front of us while our food was being cooked. Spying the sugar, I reached out a hand for it.

"Don't do that!" she cried, slapping my hand lightly but warningly. "You never put sugar in [insert whatever kind of tea it was here]!"

"Then why do they put the sugar out in the first place?" I asked.

Narrowing her eyes slightly, she told me, "they put it out for white people."

So... coffee.


Thank you! I'm surprised you remembered, but that only makes the birthday wishes the sweeter.
