Amateur Day

Aaron never understood how people only had one sugar, or even no sugars, in their tea these days. He’d look down his nose at them and mutter “amateurs” as he enjoyed the classic two teaspoons of sugar, three teaspoons of brown sugar, four tablespoons of icing sugar and a pint of skittles in his breakfast tea.
