Iced Tea

Illustration by Anna Kövecses

I want an iced tea, which isn’t in and of itself embarrassing. Driving in my car in an area I don’t recognize and that doesn’t recognize me, that is hot while I am thirsty and want an iced tea, I pull into the parking lot of a big box store as full as the big box store is big. Because I’m thirsty and there’s nowhere else nearby likely to have iced tea, which is the only thing I’m especially thirsty for. In the store, in front of the iced tea, warm, on the shelf and in quantities of six or more, I can only be disappointed. I want an iced tea that is iced, or at least cold and not accompanied by five others.
