What the hell have I been thinking about lately? It’s almost as if my brain is this festering soup of half-hearted ideas and portion-sized tidbits. The true remains of the day left me thinking about the oddest thing:
What is the proper way to use a tea bag?
I mean, do you use it once and discard or can you stretch out another cup from one? This really bugged me. Like I actually carefully thought about it and analyzed it over and over. You see, like George Costanza from Seinfeld, I thought about the double-dipping episode. To those of you who do not recall this bit of comic genius, George had attended a party and kept obsessing over everyone dipping their chips in dip, taking a bite and then dipping the chip dip again. “No double-dipping!” So, assuming that the tea bag is still intact and not soggy, then my conclusion is yes, you can definitely re-use the same tea bag and make another cup. It also is less wasteful and therefore, environmentally conscious. I think.
Well by now it should be obvious that my over-inquisitivenous is definitely due to working longer hours. This makes me more alert and more prone to random acts of statistical analysis. That, and my willingness to find alternative ways of occupying my time (other than work) because my bosses actually think that they’re doing me a favor. Maybe they are, but now I’m over-stressed and tired and I’m sure eventually this will all matter not. Right now I’m so burned I can’t even do the easy things well. Namely, this blog.
