Were you ever poor when you grew up? Perhaps you are poor now. Poor people don't always have the money to buy the things they need. When my sister Sparkleface and I were very young we were poor poor poor. We used to drink Old Maid's Tea before bed. Here's how to make it:

1. Boil some water and put it in a cup.
2. Add one splash of milk...not too much 'cause you have to save it for the baby.
3. Add one spoon of sugar and stir until Dad says to stop because the tinkling spoon is driving him crazy.
4. Drink and enjoy.

It's one of those things...I can afford all the tea I want now, but sometimes I still enjoy a cup of Old Maid's Tea.
