Me : Bizarre. I like a cup of tea.
X : It's just boiled water with leaves.
Me : Very Douglas Adams. It's more than that, to me anyway.
X : I don't understand.
X : Yes
Me : I haven't.
X : So?
Me : Have you ever been so poor you had to forgo eating to pay a bill, found yourself homeless, borrowed from others as you had nothing left.
X : No
Me : I have.
Me : Has life been good to you?
X : I've worked hard.
Me : You've never suffered any hardship?
X : No
Me : Well you have. The joy I get from just sitting on the bank of a river having a cup of tea is probably joy you could never imagine.
Me : Really? Do you ever feel a longing in your heart, a feeling that something is missing in life?
X : Sure, but everyone does.
Me : I don't. I have a cup of tea and everything is good. I am content with the most simple of things.
