Anyone who knows me knows that I am, well, pretty much of a knucklehead. And this little story just proves it once again.
So I drink a lot of ice tea. And absurd amount, really. Lots and lots of it. A gallon a day kind of a lot. And naturally I have one of those simple, cheap, yet hopelessly useful ice tea makers. I then buy boxes of Luzianne Tea in the “Ice Tea Bag” size. Each of these boxes has 24 bags in it – says so right on the box -- and I use three of these bags every time I brew up a batch of that magic elixir. So that is eight batches per box, with no teabags left over, right?
But no, it’s not that simple. I always end up with *one bag left over* when I get to the last batch. Every time! Huh? I stand there and ponder it -- “Is this like a ‘Baker’s Dozen’ thing going on here with my tea bags?”
And then I take this mysterious “extra” bag, grab two out of the new box, and make the next batch. And in a week, I’m wondering again.
See, I told you I’m a knucklehead.
