"Over there, the ABC Store."
Trying not to snicker loud enough for them to hear I said, "Oh that's not a teacher store. They sell drinks there."
"Can we get a drink? We're thirsty" came the reply.
Um no, they sell drinks for grown-ups.
"Whiskey?" asked my 6 year old.
"Like whiskey and a hot bath?" from my 9 year old.
I nearly wrecked the car.
Now before you get all judgy-like, I don't drink whiskey and I rarely have time for a hot bath. Thanks to hours of watching Little House on the Prairie and the Love Comes Softly series, my children have a healthy reference point when it comes to ABC stores. And it got me off the hook for having to explain the ins and outs of hard liquor.
Enjoy your day!
