Me and My Tea

We have a honey man.

There...I said it. 

We are particular when it comes to honey, not just any will do. We choose to be picky about some things and honey happens to be one of them. Recently we ran out, PANIC! We bought some "store brand" honey and my husband and I decided to suffer with no honey. We snuck it into the kids decaf tea while speed dialing the honey man.
Calling the honey man turns into this back and forth voice mail message game. He is a teacher selling honey on the side; not the easiest guy to contact. We wait by the phone...when is he coming? You peak out of the curtain, no honey man. Then, he makes the drop!

We now have THE honey. Three enormous jars just to be on the safe side. It is reassuring when I see those beautiful golden jars. No worries as I sip my sweetened hot tea and soak in the moment of relaxation.

  2. Betsy, I totally feel your pain! It is panic and crisis when item of choice is not available. I had to laugh when you thought you'd make do with store bought. That's all I've ever known. Maybe I'll have to check out the honey guy at the farmer's market.

  3. I laughed out loud! Yes - there are certain things that just aren't the same from the store. You perfectly described the panic mode too. My co-worker has just started keeping bees, so maybe our family will have a hone man soon!

  4. I think I need to go make some tea and add some honey! I do buy local honey- tastes great and is so good for you. My favorite honey though comes from my son's hives from half way across the country!!

  5. Well I don't have a honey man, but I do have a honey-do man. LOL. Actually, friends of ours sells fresh brown eggs and store ones just do not taste the same afterwards. We have a honey place nearby. You have made me think about trying the real thing out. I loved your line breaks. Very attention getting.

  6. Local honey? That is sooo good for you from what I hear! It is supposed to help with allergies. I love the way you write this like a confession :)

  7. Very fun & I'm happy you found the honey-man. You told the story with some terrific lines of anxious moments, like 'speed-dialing' and making do with the other honey, but just for the kids. I have been given some honey from a student whose family keeps bees. It has an unusual flavor & is as much tangy as sweet. I was waiting for you to tell what kind you prefer. We sometimes look for lavendar honey, but mostly just buy the usual from a local honey farm-very good but not so flavorful.

  8. I enjoyed this slice today! For whatever reason, I got the Candyman song in my head as I read it...the honey man can! :) I liked the line where you said he made the drop...it creates visions of him sneaking up to your doorstep in the dark, dropping it on your porch and ringing the doorbell as he sneaks back into the darkness. Funny!

  9. A honey man to the rescue - made me chuckle. The feeling you got from drinking tea with honey was worth the waiting.
