I'm flattered...

but do you really have to ask?
I was at Grocery Outlet (yes aka Mold Outlet, it's really not that bad) this week because they had a 20% off all wine sale. Their wine prices are already ridiculously low, so I was stocking up. This is my cart: Wesley in the carseat, Caley in the cart where the food goes, Amelia hanging off the cart singing, "I'm swinging like a monkey" and five, yes five bottles of wine. I think I was also drinking some coffee.
We got to the line and the checker asked to see my ID and I just laughed. I'm flattered that she is required to enter my birthdate, but seriously even if I was younger than 21 and had three kids 5 and under, I think I'd have earned the privilege to drink some wine. On the other hand, having three kids 5 and under, the only place we can seem to afford wine is Grocery Outlet. Damn recession.

This is such a hilarious post. I especially love the sentence at the end about earning it if you DID have three kids and you were under 21. I called Carol (Dave's mom) once early in the morning when Dane was tiny and said, "Oh, Carol. If I was a wine drinker, I'm sure I'd be on my third glass by now. It's shaping up to be one of those days!" :) Too funny.

I agree! You should earn it if you have 3 kids under five! What a crack!

I totally relate with the 3 kids in the cart operation. I get comments CONSTANTLY while I'm shopping with our boys! I just smile and try to say something sweet!
