A Cup Of Tea Cures Everything!

When the girls got home drunk on that saturday night in the horrific hostel they all went down to the kitchen to make themselves a “cup’o tea” before they went to bed. A cup of tea I thought? They were so drunk, why in the heck would they want a cup of tea at this […]
