100 word story - tea

I've forgotten how to brew tea. I don't remember the number of scoops per pot, the cooking time of the water.
What is my favorite cup? Is it the chipped mint one or the red?
Why do I have only one spoon?
There is something humming constantly, like a fat bumblebee. Funny, I know the word bumblebee. Have I ever seen one?
The humming gets louder. Something beeps, hurting my ears.
Why do I feel I am in trouble?
I need my tea.
The ship is under attack.
I am in space. I think we're at war...
Oh dear.
Help?

  1. That was great, well done. It reminds me of how my mind works jumping around instead of focusing on just making the tea :)
