Florida Center, USA, October 4, 1999 (Originally in English)
mother came home from shopping for tea, and saw that some tea had already
been made by her 15-year-old daughter. The mother then asked the daughter,
"Did you use the tea strainer?" Because in England they use
chopped tea leaves to make tea, and you have to use a tea strainer to
strain out the tea leaves, and then drink only the liquid. And the daughter
said, "Yes, mother, I did filter the tea leaves. But I couldn't
find the tea strainer, so I used the fly swatter." The mother said,
"Oh! My God! Why did you do that? You shouldn't have done that!"
And the daughter said, "Oh mother, don't panic. It's just an old
one. I didn't use the new one."
