1. My delivery did not arrive so I am postponing my announcement for a week. It has shipped but has otherwise fallen off the tracking record. Except for one Kate Spade incident at Christmas 4 years ago, this is the only shipping error I have ever had with on-line ordering.

2. My son and I went for sushi yesterday which means I was, thereafter, thirsty. Second of all, my son is not one to pass up a free sample. Which together means that we were ripe for the sales pitch the comes with the free samples at Teavana. Yes, we did want to try the free samples of the iced tea inside the store. Yes, the strawberry-lemonade jasmine tea is lovely, but I'll take just the strawberry lemonade.

Salesperson adds a scoop of jasmine to the strawberry lemonade.

"Oh, I just want the strawberry lemonade."

"I already mixed it."

"Oh, that's fine then."

"That will be $44."


"It's $44"

"I don't want it."

"I can't resell it. It's a blend."

I felt so duped and so stupid that I couldn't think of a way to talk myself out of it. Really, the appropriate lesson considering my son was right there was that I should have looked at him and said, "Run like hell!"

I have $44 worth of tea. You're all invited over for tea.

3. Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray is a miracle for my not curly, not straight hair.

  1. If I was closer I'd come for tea and bring the vodka.
