Last week my friend Melissa came to visit. We were watching Project Runway and out of nowhere she said "I really wish we could have a tea party soon" and without looking away from the television I declared "Done". That evening I went to the shops to buy everything I needed for a very mini tea party. I bought different kinds of teas: traditional, sweet and fruity, also I bought a box of cute Walkers shortbread to share. Shortbread is my very favorite biscuit, they come from my home country, Scotland, and I like to let my American friends enjoy it.
Melissa and our other friend, Betty, arrived together, they were dressed so cutely in pearls, skirts and high heels! They looked very trendy. Melissa had brought cranberry scones and Betty brought yummy chocolate biscuits! They all sat down and I got the tea ready. To my horror I discovered that one of the teas I had bought was loose leaf and I didn't have an infuser. Luckily my guests were really chill, we ended up drinking a whole box worth of vanilla tea instead.
As my guests were leaving Betty noticed a massive spider outside my house. It was almost the size of my palm, with yellow legs the width of my pinkie finger and a menacing black body. It chased us a bit and we ran back into the house. It was seriously the scariest thing ever! Melissa, who is braver than Betty and I, herded us back out and we went to buy some ultra powerful bug spray for large spiders and scorpions. When we got back to my house we ran past it once more and camped out watching even more Project Runway until my boyfriend came and sprayed it. It was so, so scary!
Besides the spider incident our day was quite lovely. I wore St. Mephistos Cathedral by Alice and the Pirates for the first time, it made me feel so refined! I very much hope that we can have another tea party again soon, next time Melissa says she will host it. Yay!
