Aidan: Hey , How is it going with your homework
Ogie : Sigh – I don’t know, man. Accounting is really not my cup of tea. I’ve been trying to solve this for ages

Ogie :I’m not drinking tea …
Ogie : It actually means I don’t really like doing accounting, but having a cup of tea with milk is common in some countries.
Aidan: Really? I thought you use milk only with coffee. Let’s have a cuppa then!
Ogie : Sounds good! I need a break anyway.
