You'll have had your tea?

Said to be the traditional greeting to a visitor when arriving at a certain kind of Scottish household, specially in our nation's capital, Edinburgh. I thought of this when I read this story. I must not mock, though - I'm sure there's a serious point here. Incidentally I don't drink tea, or coffee - I drink plain cold water instead (much healthier), when I'm not drinking wine and I use energy-saver bulbs wherever I can. Cheers!
