¡Es sólo té! / It´s just tea!
Standing in the queue at the super there´s a lady in her 60´s looking attentively at the items I have put on the belt. Will be the tofu? Nowadays who doesn´t know what tofu is? Will be the hummus tub? Now she will probably ask me how I serve it, how it tastes like ando so on. I know it. Suddenly she says: "So they also sell this kind of tea,now". I assume she means the supermarket own brand and I point out that they have been selling different varieties of tea under its name since many years ago. "Oh, but this one. Isn´t it aphrodisiac? - says indicating the Earl Grey tea box with 25 sachets. "Isn´t it part of the film merchandising?" If it was it would contain 50 poisoned sachets,madam. Only God knows how much I hate that damned Mr. Grey.
