A Time to Diet

"I need to lose weight," said the middle aged red-haired woman, brushing the first lock of silver from her forehead. "What do you suggest?"

Meinwen shrugged. "Eating less, taking more exercise. You look all right to me."

She was gifted with a fleeting smile. "Thanks. I read something about a slimming tea?"

"All teas are slimming to a greater or lesser extent," said Meinwen. "Taken without milk or sugar, naturally. Green tea is particularly favourable for detoxification and dieting, but you have to take it on an every day basis and in moderation."

"Any particular brand?"

"Dragon's Well." Meinwen nodded for emphasis and smiled.

"Okay. I'll take a box."

Meinwen laughed. "I don't sell it," she said. "Crystals, incense, rune stones, tarot cards... but not tea."

Hmmmm - Meinwen might have a lucrative business in tea - you never know. Especially served while reading the cards and then the customer wants to know what kind of tea is this anyway?......I can see it all now.

Alas, Meinwen doesn't have a shred of psychic ability. She just sells the trappings.

*laughs* She's so honest.

Almost a pity. She'd sell more if she wasn't.
