Sugars and Stars


Could Aunty really fit as many sugars in her tea as stars in the sky? We began our counting.


The scene is  a visit of Papua New Guinean ladies who are mum’s friends.  She sure liked her sugar.

This could be an opening line, or a memorable line somewhere in the middle.  The scene originally featured in a play I wrote based on memories of growing up PNG in Tasmania.
