I always wondered why two tea bags were needed. I rather often use a
single tea bag for two cups of tea; I just let it steep for a while. (And
no, I don't like particularly weak tea.)

Oh, good grief, me too! Although authors' sentence patterns tend to show
up more in things I write than in things I think or say--I definitely use
more semicolons after reading Robin McKinley (although I'm fond of
semicolons anyway); and my favorite of the poems I've written spilled out
of my head after I'd read "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" about
My current problem with thinking/saying things is that I'm stage managing
a production of "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead" which goes up next
week, and so I'm in the stage of quoting madly whenever something reminds
me of a particular line, which happens quite often.
"Pirates could happen to anyone."
"...when the wind is southerly."
"And the weather's clear."
Everything I like is either illegal, immoral or fattening.
