100 word story – tea

I’ve forgotten how to brew tea. I don’t remember the number of scoops per pot, the cooking time of the water.
What is my favorite cup? Is it the chipped mint one or the red?
Why do I have only one spoon?
There is something humming constantly, like a fat bumblebee. Funny, I know the word bumblebee. Have I ever seen one?
The humming gets louder. Something beeps, hurting my ears.
Why do I feel I am in trouble?
I need my tea.
The ship is under attack.
I am in space. I think we’re at war…
Oh dear.
Help?
