I've brought you a cup of tea

'Even matchboxes aren't what they used to be. When I was young a matchbox looked like something, it had personality. Now they're just insipid or else garish catch-pennies for tourists.'

'I've brought you a cup of team, Daddy.'

'The world is poisoned and starving and on the brink of nuclear war and all you can do is bring a cup of tea." (c)

(From "A Fairly Honourable Defeat" by Iris Murdoch)
