in a victorian tearoom!

Couple of months earlier and I still have this taste in my mouth. Strong black tea with milk and spoonfuls of syrupy, moist chocolate cake. I can also recall correctly the sound of a guitar, a violin, a banjo, two pair of shoes dancing on the wooden floor, a dog snoring and two lips sipping carefully from a hot mug. I remember the atmosphere, I can make a perfume resembling the flowery scent of the place, you can ask and get an accurate answer about anything taking place in this victorian tearoom because in my dreams I would work and live right in there! So why ask for more when you can serve barefoot in your floral velvet dress, surrounded by artists, musicians and your scruffy dogs sleeping in armchairs?
