Drinking Tea = Going to Vegas

I hate flying. My fear has escalated after having a kid, with worries that she’ll be left alone to be raised by racoons after my plane is struck by turbulence and loses a wing. My dear husband wants to leave my defenseless and fragile child with her grandparents for a quick jaunt to Vegas, somewhere we have been multiple times. Yes, it would be nice to wake up at noon, play blackjack, drink too much, and then wake up to do it again – but why can’t we do that without getting on a two-winged death machine?

My favorite tea cup states: “Each cup of tea represents an imaginary voyage.” Perhaps there is a Vegas-type tea that I can feed to my spouse along with that line.
