“I’m thirsty.”

“Hi, thirsty. I’m Matt.”

I’m not a dad but I’ve been known to have a few “dad jokes” up my sleeve — whenever it seems appropriate or if I’m in the mood to make things awkward.

The same goes for Manish Shah, owner of Transit Tea at 2645 E. Speedway Blvd. and the nationally recognized Maya Tea. Every once in a while he and the team share cheesy jokes to keep you smiling.

“Dad jokes,” said Shah. “You can’t always come to Transit Tea every week but we can still lift your spirits.”
