Dear Tastebuds at the Forefront of My Tongue,
You seem to be missing. I understand you may be upset. I would also be upset if someone I knew and trusted poured boiling ginger peach tea all over me. However, your absence is making my life quite difficult.
My deepest apologies for burning you so. Please come home.
P. S. I didn’t know the tea was still hot. I’d never used that insulating mug before.
