Do you dunk your cookie in your tea?
Get a steaming cup of tea, a mug if you’re thirsty,
get cookies (I call them biscuits)
Sip a sip and let go of the obligatory ahh!
(You could close your eyes )
You could blow on you tea if it’s too hot but I assure you,
always choose the middle path,
you don’t want to drink cool tea because it’s sacrilege,
it’s just not done — I disapprove.
So grab your cookie and dunk it in
for precisely three seconds,
timing is very necessary or you’ll find your cookie plop
and sink into the cup like the Titanic,
never to be retrieved like lost opportunities!
Well let’s not get morose, you’ll still be left with half a cookie,
mildly annoyed feelings
and a tiny loss of self worth for not being quick enough.
You could sigh and roll your eyes if that happens,
it could be therapeutic.
But be a sport,
just eat what’s left and chase it with a sip!
Remember, three seconds is the sweet spot.
Please don’t lose hope (I hope you’re taking notes)
you’ll discover the wreckage of your lost cookie
at the bottom of the cup,
it’s mutated now to a brown blob,
but if you’re frugal and hate waste or just don’t like to lose,
even to a cookie,
you could try coaxing it to fall in your mouth — bottoms up,
but let me tell you
it’s been tried and tested and tastes exactly what it looks like,
But good luck!
