We leave tomorrow morning at 4am for our site visits. Of course, my mom is insisting on packing me a lunch and walking me to the bus stop in the morning. I tried to tell her that I didn’t need to pack a lunch and I had already bought snacks for the drive, but no use. She asked what time I was getting up to take a bath and have tea before I left, I said no way. The idea of leaving the house without first having tea is borderline sacrilegious, so she tried to convince me to take the thermos into my room to have my tea in my room (though I’m not really sure how that would make any difference). When I said no she tried to convince me to take the thermos on the trip with me.
