Shall I Be Mother? - a 50 word photo-story

Although no-one now living has tasted the forbidden drink called Tssh, there are places you can go to for a pretend Tssh ritual. Decadents in particular like the suggestive shapes of the objects involved, to imagine pouring and stirring the hot fluids. Experienced Tssh servers charge fortunes for private sessions.

It seemed sensible to have a spare one to cater for visitors. Although she's embarrassed by what has happened, she has learned so much. Firstly, the gestation period of a teapot is two weeks. Initially, it emerges naked and unglazed. Secondly, it's important to protect the youngsters with a teacloth.

Each time she brought forth the teapot to the unsuspecting guests she was amazed at the varied reactions, some hid their faces in shame, recoiled in obvious horror, cried, while others sat wide mouths gaping in awe of this remarkable treasure and a little unsure of how to use it.

I will never look at teapots the same again! No wonder they have all those 'cosy' covers!
