Wine from a Tea Pot

Woke up with a slight sore throat. Must have not covered myself well last night as well as smoked too much. Yesterday, was my birthday.

After a morning going round the local offices with my dad to distribute gifts, Nahida popped out the cake she had prepared the night before. Dad remarked by the time he was twenty-eight he was already into his second marriage.

From there I drove back to Baghdad, bought some wine and went over to my ex-neighbour's place. Another friend from school showed up a little later and we went out for dinner where we were served wine in cups out of a tea pot!

Happy Birthday, Shaggy. :)

Wine in tea cups? That reminds me of the story behind the drink called a "Long Island Iced Tea". It's got various types of alcohol in it, but tastes a bit like Lemonade, with a bite, of course. ;) Usually very strong. But the story goes that it was invented by a group of women who got together to talk, play cards whatever. They didn't want people to know they were drinking, so they called their beverage of choice a "Long Island Iced Tea". Sounded more innocent. :) I don't know if that story is true or not, but it's kind of fun.
