at my most annoying

Quinn, a guest in my house, making cups of tea for me and her: Where’s the sugar?

R (crashed out in the comfy chair): Beets.

Quizzical looks from Quinn and Mike.

R (warming to my theme): Sugar cane. Various kinds of fruit. Corn.

Silence, crickets, tumbleweed.

R: And there’s a pink cardboard box in the cupboard beside the fridge.

Q (calmly): Thank you.
