Who in the world could resist a teapot? Don’t stop to answer that, it’s a rhetorical question. However, it could be a great topic for a psychology master’s program dissertation. Fortunately there is a teapot for every personality, mood and occasion, including teapot resistors.
So shopping for a teapot is not a ho hum slam bam expedition to the mall or Amazon’s website. If I am losing you, think about going to an animal shelter searching for the perfect pet. Choosing is difficult, because each potential pet is unique and endearing in their own special way. The same applies to teapots, which have personalities too. Some are just too too cute for words. Others, darling, are sophisticated and at times enjoy making other teapots feel dowdy.
The prim teapots, bright eyed and sweet, love being used for morning tea. While the sensual pots loath being used any time before noon. Okay is everyone is on my train now? Get your ticket out, the conductor is coming.
With so many choices of teapots and endless permutations of personalities and moods, oh dear what to do? This would have been the time to mention hand wringing to complete the visual. I stopped myself. I realized I had literally never witnessed anyone wring their hands as a sign of stress. I suspect that piece of body language went out of fashion at the same time it was prudent to have smelling salts handy for women fainting right and left.
I am sure dear readers, you have jumped ahead of me with the obvious conclusion. A person needs multiple teapots! There the problem is solved.
Guess what? The solution becomes even simpler. Can you believe this? Wild Goose Tea features a wonderful eclectic selection of pots from the wacky eccentric pots from the United Kingdom, to richly patterned ethnic pots of Tunisia and Poland, to the elegant Franz Porcelain teapots from China with stops in between.
The train has stopped at the station. Hop off, stretch your legs and check out the teapots in the station’s gift shop.
