Pickle Me This

February 15, 2010

Oh, for a cup of tea and crumpets

” ‘Do you know, Wilmet–‘ the dark eyes looked so seriously into mine that I wondered what horror was going to be revealed next– ‘he hadn’t even got a teapot?’

‘Goodness! How did he make tea, then?’

‘He didn’t– he never made tea! Just fancy!’

‘Well, one doesn’t really associate Piers with drinking tea,’ I said.

‘He drinks it now,’ said Keith. ”

–from A Glass of Blessings by Barbara Pym
