The Rite of Earl Grey

Reposted from Facebook:

A sign at Starbucks said: “Like most meaningful rituals, making a perfect glass of iced tea is easy.” Most meaningful rituals (weddings, bar mitzvahs, dressing for a Raiders home game) are complex affairs that fail the easiness test.  And making iced tea is not a ritual.  It’s barely a recipe. I suspect the dim bulb who came up with this never achieved anything more in life than making iced tea, and just wanted to brag.
