Illusory Advice: Cup of tea?

"Symbols exist in ordinary life. There are symbolic rituals around visitors for example. Your host may say: ‘Welcome. Would you like a cup of tea?’ They are not necessarily enquiring as to whether their guest is thirsty. It is a symbolic ritual of smoothing the movement into form of the new situation of a visitor arriving. It enables the host and the guest to become comfortable with one another. "
