If you really want to do it right, you need a caddy.

Ummm, no.

I never knew there could be so many parallels between the game of gentlemen and the civiliTea of tea. If you had 6 fingers, you could count them with 2 hands.

But in today's warming climate ... sadly they were cold. And not the answer to the riddle. And unfortunately I do not have enough bonus tees ... er teas to give out 12 bonus tea samples.

There is a clue here somewhere ... and a bunch of misdirections in this round.

You've got to be kidding . :( .. I've no time for tee...

Golf balls come in packs of 12. I'm guessing there will be 12 teas in this OTTI?

B-I-N-G-O! But that is a whole other game.

Yes there are 12 different selections for this OTTI! WOW! Wait til Friday at 6 to see what options are available. Participants will not be required to get all 12. But participants can get all 12!

Congratulations. When you register for Shincha OTTI/OOTI 18, please be sure to remind me to include a bonus shincha. But wait, that means there are 13?

Actually with BONUS selections there are MORE than 12, how many are there? A 2nd chance for a BONUS selection!

No. 6 selections was the previous high. But Shincha is special, why not make it even more special with more selections?

But as I mentioned above, participants will not be required to get all 12, but they will have the option to get all 12. :mrgreen:

No way! You didn't go that far! :!:

Is the answer 18 selections? Like 18 holes? Or... is this bonus question unrelated to golf?
