This question is on the blog, Booking Through Thursday:
“If you’re like me, you grew up reading everything under the sun, like the cereal boxes while you ate your breakfast, the newspapers held by strangers on the subway, the tabloid headlines at the grocery store.
What’s the oddest thing you’ve ever read? (You know, something NOT a book, magazine, short story, poem or article.)”
Here’s my response: Celestial Seasonings tea boxes have inspirational quotes and meditations. For a while there I was saving the tea boxes and cutting out the quotes and taping them on my kitchen cabinets and sending them to people like this one from the Red Zinger box that quotes from Life’s Little Instruction Book, Volume II, “Add Joy to Your Life” followed by 8 ways to find joy. Some of the people I sent the tea box cutouts thought I was very strange and made fun of me. Others actually thanked me.
Now I save the tags from Yogi Tea which has spiritual quotes like this one , “If you don’t know where you come from, you cannot know where you are going.”

I always liked the Salada tea bags that would have some sort of quirky pun on them. Sometimes they were terrible, sometimes they were funny, but I always looked forward to reading them when I made my cup of tea.
Salada tea bags too? Must be something about tea. The quiet comtemplation thing. The four o’clock tea time. Tea more than coffee, very ritualisitc.
Thanks for stopping by.
