Margie: Edna, today is National Iced Tea Day. I wonder how much iced tea we've had to drink in our lifetime? Daddy sure did love tea. Mama always had a big pitcher in the fridge for him.
I think Cousin T is the only person who can drink as much tea as Daddy did. What do you think, sister?
Edna: I don't know, I've seen you put away gallons of the stuff then blame me when it's all gone. Speaking of which, we're all out so you'd best go make some more.
Margie: I'm not well, sister. The Dr. told me not to lift any pans. The best I can do is hold a tea glass then I run to the potty chair because of this medicine.
Ouch! Call my male nurse. Hurry!
Edna: Oh, I can hear the violins playing now. But you're right, the doctor said you should rest so I'll go brew us up a fresh batch of iced tea. But I don't want to hear any complaints about how I made it. Deal?
Margie: Deal. Make sure you put enough sugar, Edna. Oh, don't put ice in it until it cools off.
Edna: Good Lord folks, next thing you know she'll want me to call her "Your Majesty" and curtsy when I bring her a glass of iced tea. Kiss my grits, your royal highness!
