Having Tortoise Family to Tea

We invited the new family to Sunday tea. Who knew they would all tortoises be? We pretended it was normal, Gram and me. They did not reach for a single chocolate chip cookie. Go out and catch some flies, said Auntie Bea. They like them fresh and alive with their tea. The way she knew was funny to little old me. She used to date an old tortoise, you see.
