    My Auntie often read the tea leaves at Bridal or Baby showers. That's going back many years now. A wonderful memory nudge Mini and thank you for that. 5 forks from me.

    Oh! And sometimes there's the ones for new babies, where they bring the baby to be "seen" after it's born instead of before. --Kn0x--

    Lovely! You got it right on the sip & see, too. The old "see-ers" used to read the tea leaves in the cups with the bride's future in them...
