You know, sometimes it is better to simply be discreet than to try to
make excuses. My morning breakfast tea is a public safety measure.
But I drink it only in my camp and usually before I'm suitable for
polite company. But you won't find me coming up with some convoluted
explanation of why/how an early 15th c French woman has a pot of
Camellia sinensis in her kitchen. Talking about how it was or wasn't
period wouldn't be... very period, would it? I kind of feel the same
way about glasses. Better to simply ignore their presence, and 'not see' them.
