Whenever I’m eating out, anyone can tell what I’m gonna order first. Definitely ice tea & that’s how much I love it. My love for tea dates back right to when I was a kid, may be 4 or 5 years old or may be 6. Can’t even remember since when.
All that I do recollect was that I hated milk (from the bottom of my soul). My mom, with an intention of generating interest, would add some tea to a glass full of milk. Only then would I even look at it. It had to look like pale, light colored tea & that was what I would call it – ‘Gora Chai’ which means ‘Fair Tea’ 🙂
My love for tea has grown since the time I had my first ice tea. Okay so I guess I digressed, but the point is my love for tea has followed me so very very far, that every time I think of making flavored ice tea at home, my eyes sparkle & i have a big smile flashing 🙂
Now imagine, I’m geared up for making ice tea & guess what? There’s no ice @ home 😦 😦 😦
Can you feel my pain 😦 Its like I’m all set to go for my vacation & I suddenly remember, I haven’t booked any tickets 😦
So this happened a few times.. I was all set n ready to throw in ice into my flavored tea & noticed, ice tray’s empty…
Do you think I’m so crazy to stop making Ice Tea cuz always there’s a shortage of ice at home? Obviously not!!
We all know what I started doing.. I started filling the ice trays.. Everytime I made Ice tea, even before i could sip it, I would first fill up the empty ice tray so that i ensured myself loads of ice for the next time I felt like making ice tea.
It looks quite simple na? But we do the same stuff in our life..
In college, we blame the professors as incapable or claim the subjects are boring & find ourselves a comfy excuse for disallowing us to take our college seriously. At work, we blame our bosses, our team mates, our office timings to give an excuse for ‘Not up to the mark’ performance. At home, we blame our family members, our neighbors or anyone else for being unable to do our bit..
What are we up to? Are we giving up on Ice Tea, cuz the ice tray is empty?
Isn’t it time to start filling our ice trays rather than complaining there’s no ice!! Its even worse if we think of quitting the idea of making ice tea..
Does this ring any bell for you?
