I just took my three grandchildren out for lunch at Wendys (a fast food hamburger chain) while goodwife did some financial stuff with "mom and dad". We got in the line up and I asked 4 year old Brennen what he wanted. He answered " I want french fries and I want chicken and I want a hamburger and I want--" At this point I said "Wo, boy, ya can't have all that stuff. I'll get you fries and chicken nuggets, and if you're still hungry afterwards I'll buy you a shot of whiskey!!!" Never thought anymore about it. We sat down in the restaurant and eat, and the girls and Brennen and I cleaned up all the food. While we were setting eating, a group of well dressed, rather dignified people came in and set at the table next to us. I think they were one of the local church groups. Eventually momma's cell phone (which I had been entrusted with) rang, letting me know the "financial stuff" was finished and I could bring the kids back home to their house. The restaurant suddenly picked that moment to go dead silent, and Brennen piped up "But Poppa---What about my whiskey???"--Sure got a few strange looks from the other diners-----

I'd be more worried about them eating burgers, chips (English), chicken nuggets and all the rest of that rubbish. At least Whisky (spelling) is a natural product.

At least Whisky (spelling) is a natural product.

It's Scotch Whisky and Irish Whiskey.

Whiskey is also the usual USA/Canadian spelling.

Or Jack Daniel's Tennessee whiskey..... or George Dickel whisky.

The only true Whisky(sp) is Scotch, and this is a gin drinking Englishman speaking. Everybody else is wrong!
I can't be sure, being English, but isn't poison ivy a plant not a product?
What is poison ivy? I only know it from a song. "She comes on like a rose, but everybody knows etc."

One of ours at that age pointed out Diary Queen as "the place where Granpa took us for ice cream and he had a beer". Since I don't drink beer, there was some puzzlement until we figured out he was refering to Root Beer...

Ah yes, Dairy Queen...home of the brassiere burgers!

When my two grown daughters were 5 and 6 we took them to a very nice restaurant. After they had finished their food the waiter asked them if they enjoyed their food. They both said yes and the younger one told the waiter that this was a very nice restaurant. He quickly asked what makes you think so young lady? My daughter in her loudest voice said, "There is no writing on the bathroom walls." We also got the look from surrounding guests.

Great story Brian! I have three kids myself, right now at 10, 7, and 5. Amazing stuff they say sometimes!

I think that program is almost as old as I am. "Kids say the darnest things" I forget the MC that ran it but I bet someone here will remember.
