SocMo enjoys going to High TEA with his friends, but he must always remember to take along his clip on pinkie.

Speaking of TEA... scroll on down to the next post and see my receipe for ICE TEA.

SocMo tea

Every morning I start the day with 32 oz of tea in my indestructible nalgene bottle. Usually by noon it is all gone. Here is how I make my tea each day.. arrived at by trial and error over the years. Pay attention... there may be a pop quiz later.

First I microwave 2 cups (16 oz) of water in the microwave in my pyrex measuring cup. This is a fairly new measuring cup because recently I microwaved my water... and forgot to put water IN the cup first. I had to go to Wally World and buy myself a new one. So... before heating the water, always make sure there IS water in there. Next I put two (2) FAMILY sized tea bags in and steep for 7-8 minutes. I have to use a timer because after about one (1) minute I am into something else and have completely forgotten that I am making tea. I must have a short attention span. Wanna go play kickball?

When the loud, annoying beeps remind me that I am making tea, I rush back and pull out the tea bags. Then I add 1/3 cup of sugar. I like sweetened tea... but not syrupy sweet. And I get concerned about how much sugar I am consuming, so 1/3 cup seems to be the happy medium for me.

I add a couple of handfulls of ice to my pitcher and pour the hot sweetened tea in on top of it. As the hot tea melts the ice it cools it all down and I start adding water from the faucet.

TA-DAAAAA! Now it is ready for drinking... fill up that bottle and get to work! ... or go back to that kickball game.

SocMo sang his favorite SONG for the American Idol judges... "Tiptoe Through The Tulips" and accompanied himself on his ukulele. He did NOT get a ticket to Hollywood! SocMo kept saying "In-con-ceeevable!" He believes he has the best voice since William Hung. As SocMo left, he was heard saying... "Those judges don't know real talent when they hear it! I'm going to make my CD and when it comes out and sells 3 Brazilion copies, they will be sorry they didn't choose me!"

What is more SIMPLE than a smiley face? Who is more SIMPLE than SocMo? Together they form the ultimate SIMPLE. I rest my case.
Once again I have no time for any kind of elaborate drawing this week... so I was really happy to come up with a SIMPLE solution to this week's word.

SocMo likes to sit in his favorite CHAIR and pretend he is on the Bridge of the Enterprise... seeking out new civilizations... going where no sockmonkey has gone before... and annoying the bajeebers out of first mate SpockMo.
