Well, unfortunately nobody was shooting video at that moment, and my
memory is kind of hazy with only a few hours' sleep the nights before,
so instead of making it sound like I knew exactly what I was talking
about, I made tried to make it quite clear that I only think I knew
approximately what I was talking about.
OK, so maybe I'm just a big fat liar. I am sure that I offered everyone
who was upstairs at that moment some tea, and I'm also positive that I
got some replies, both positive and negative, and furthermore I'm sure
that I drank some tea and so did Matthias, and probably Steve Rice, and
maybe even one or two others - there were quite a few cups in the dish
drainer after everyone had gone - but I'm not sure that Kim was even in
the room at that time. I just thought it would make a funny story, and
I didn't think anybody was going to bust my chops about it. I don't
even know if it was actually herbal tea that we were drinking - it was a
sampler box that my mom had brought me during a visit, and I just
grabbed the packs out without looking. It may even have been fruit tea,
for all I know. But I do remember very clearly that Kim didn't drink
any of the tea, herbal or not, because I considered offering him some
whiskey instead but I didn't want to offend him that morning with a
tumbler of Kentucky bourbon aged only nine years, knowing good and well
from past discussions in this forum that he prefers 'whiskys' from your
general neighborhood, so there. :)
