Day 134, week 29: more tea, vicar?

One of the clerks brought a big box up to UpTights’ room today which left her looking quite animated.  Though it’s completely against her nature, when she started opening it she even started explaining to me what it was. 

“Pomegranate tea, BabyB.  Anti-oxidants.  They’re the answer to everything.  Absolutely everything.”

I already knew she didn’t drink caffeine and have often shuddered at the thought of how she might be if she did.  But until now her preference had been peppermint “for the digestion” and there were about fifteen boxes of it stacked neatly in the kitchen.  Now it was pomegranate for the anti-oxidants and a couple dozen more boxes.

What I find particularly strange is the fact that she’ll worry about anti-ing the smallest oxidant whilst at the same time pumping regular doses of botulism into her forehead.  Something which in all but the smallest doses is so poisonous as to be up there with the worst weapons of mass destruction.  Although…come to think of it, the amount of Botox that UpTights must have injected would be enough to worry even the laziest UN weapons inspector.

    Pomegranate juice is lovely- not sure about the tea

    Perhaps UpTights thinks she’s taking anti-toxidants that will protect her efforts to achieve an unfurrowed brow.
