Alice: Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?

The Cat: That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.

Alice: I don’t much care where–

The Cat: Then it doesn’t much matter which way you go.

Alice –so long as I get somewhere.

The Cat: Oh, you’re sure to do that, if you only walk long enough.

Velvet Underground Lyrics

“I’m gonna try to nullify my life…cause when the blood begins to flow…

And it shoots up the dropper’s neck…when I’m closin’ in on death…

Ah, you can’t help me, not you guys, or all you sweet girls with all your sweet talk…

you can all go take a walk!  And I guess I just don’t know.

 

Heroin…be the death of me…it’s my wife, and it’s my life.  Because a mainer to my vein leads to a enter in my head, and then I’m better off and dead….”

The Patois of Iced Tea

I was just with my friend from way down south.  We were at a restaurant, and we both wanted tea.  I’m from Colorado, so I ordered iced tea, knowing I would get exactly that…plain tea over ice.

Not my friend.  If she wants plain iced tea, she orders “unsweet tea” (temperature unspecified), only it sounds more like “on-suweyt tay.”  Otherwise, she thinks she will will get tea loaded with sugar, as this is apparently the way tea is served in the South.  This was how the conversation went:

Friend: “Unsweet tea, please.”

Waiter (after a momentary blank stare): “You mean iced tea?”

Friend: “Yes, but I don’t want any sugar in it.”

Waiter: “Um, okay, well, we don’t put sugar in it.  You can do that yourself if you want; there’s sugar on the table.”

I wish I were from the South.  Regardless of how my friend orders her tea, she is far more polite, magnanimous, and socially polished than I could ever hope to be.  She is a modern-day Scarlett O’Hara.
