There is absolutely nothing I love more in the world than curling up with a good book and a pot of tea.
In fact, I have (on occasion or two) unexpectedly started feeling sick when about to go out on a social outing and was forced to sit at home and finish the book I’d been completely consumed with.
But if we’re being honest, doesn’t running through the dark, shadowy moors of England trying to outrun a mysterious hound or reclaiming your home from a gold loving dragon sound much more appealing than making drunk friends in a women’s restroom?
My favorite thing about reading is how a good book has the power to transport you to a whole different world. It’s very much like Alice in Wonderland which just happens to be one of my favorite stories.
Who hasn’t dreamed of traveling to Wonderland and having tea with Alice and the Mad Hatter?
I know I have which is why on the first rainy day (because we all know rainy days are meant for tea) of the year, I was marching down the street of Birmingham to Mad Hatter Bistro for afternoon tea.
Warning: you may have to take a “Drink Me” potion to get in the door.
You can go for a full afternoon tea or opt for just tea and scones.
Be sure to take a trip down the rabbit hole!
Try to be more graceful than me and don’t actually fall when trying to fake fall.
” ‘Have I gone mad?’
‘I’m afraid so. You’re entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.’ ”
When you finally pull yourself out of the rabbit hole and back to the rain and reality you’ll be stuck asking yourself one question . . .
“Why is a raven like a writing desk?”
