Once upon a time there were three little beverage containers.
They were used and loved by all the little ones in the kingdom. They held water, milk, juice, hot chocolate – all kinds of wonderful things the little ones loved to drink.
But they became dirty. Very dirty.
The King and Queen of the land didn’t know what to do to clean them because there were so many tiny parts that were hard to reach.
Well, actually the Queen knew what to do; she was pretty smart.
She used a small little brush (not the blue sponge) to reach the cracks, crevices and long parts that couldn’t be reached with anything else.
First the Queen cleaned the small thermos straw.
Then the Queen cleaned the long straw. And she wondered how her hands had gotten so red.
And finally the Queen cleaned the lid of the container using the same small brush.
The King and the rest of the kingdom rejoiced! The beverage containers were put back to use immediately and the little ones were filled with joy.
Where did the Queen get such a wonderful tool? From the cake supply section at her local craft market (store). She discovered the name of this tool and sent a proclamation out to her entire kingdom.
This, my subjects, is called a Tip Brush.
And they all lived happily ever after.
