A MAN has been able to get sugar into his tea without spilling it across every conceivable surface in the area.
It had been accepted that all men under the age of 60 were unable to grasp the mechanics of hyper-local sugar transportation.
But now 38 year-old Nathan Muir, from Stevenage, has left experts stunned.
Muir said: “The final hurdle of the tea-making process had become my Everest. Regardless of my concentration and commitment somewhere along the journey from sugar bowl to mug all hell would break loose.
“It’s like the teaspoon had a mind of its own and I was no longer in control. I actually started to add more sugar to the spoon just to make up for the levels of attrition.
“For years, successive partners had told me to move the mug closer to the sugar bowl, as if that was something that one could just ‘do’.”
Muir added: “Anyway, it was probably luck and I’m fairly certain it won’t happen again.”
