Bud-dies and sip-lings, lend a girl a hand? A noun? A verb?
(A cup of tea?)
Cool, sweet, and humid; pine bark after the rain.
Doesn’t quite put the “fun” in “function,” but that’s ok–a quiet tea can still have a lot to say. Take your time with the cup, at least five minutes before deciding to chuck or chug.
