4pm

Things a man could consider doing at 4pm.

Making a cup of tea

Putting more milk into the tea.

Opening a window

Milking a goat

Listening to a language he doesn’t understand. (http://www.rte.ie/rnag/ for starters)

Nothing.

Read a book ideally Guernica and Total War by Ian Patterson

Open a book and pretend to read it.

Close the book and rest his elbows on it.

Break open the old teabag and count the leaves in it.

    Do teabags actually contain leaves, or is the content basically dust? (Not that dust is bad tea, necessarily.)
