A while back, Lisa wrote about her adventure at the Tea Shop (Teavana) at The Galleria (which makes me feel like I am stepping into the past because I remember the Valley Girl song that talked about The Galleria except hers was in bitchin' Encino and mine is not. However, my Galleria has an ice rink inside so I think I should get some bonus points for that.
Anyhoo, I had to go to The Galleria today for another reason and thought I would check out Teavana when I went because maybe the monkeys were back in stock and I could let Lisa know. How I live in the same city with her and haven't met her yet is a bit of a mystery to me but I am beginning to think that maybe she managed to get me secretly microchipped and now that she knows where I am all the time, she makes sure that she can hide when I'm going to be in relatively close proximity. (Hey! This is MY conspiracy theory, don't judge me!)
The Teavana people a) love to fight antioxidants and b) try to sell you a $50 pound of tea. I mean, really, who needs A POUND OF TEA?
Anyhow, I somehow got finagled into buying some tea. Which is fine, I guess. I mean, I went to a tea store so it isn't like I was going to buy delicious chocolate (which I think also has antioxidants in it) at the tea store, right? So, now I have to somehow convince myself that I am a tea drinker.
I think the funniest part is the (absolutely SUPER, thanks for asking) dude who rang up my purchase didn't tell me how much money I spent, he told me how much I was "investing in my health and well-being". I'll let you know if this is some sort of magic monkey tea and if I manage to become a tea drinker.
