Happy Hour

When this publishes, I'll be on a plane. But I thought I'd share this funny thing that happened yesterday.

I needed to go to the bank to get some cash for my trip. I don't know why I waited until Caleb was home, too, but I did. We all got into the car and I bribed them with slushes from Sonic. Gotta love Happy Hour!

Caleb is a really good reader and can sound out just about anything. He loves to find words on signs, buildings, whatever. After we got our slushes, he was reading the cup. He sounded out "Your Ultimate Drink Stop". Then he started saying, "Happy whore! Happy whore! Hey, Mom! This says happy whore!" Once I stopped spitting my slush all over the dashboard, I explained that the "h" in "hour" is silent. He now pronounces it correctly but I don't think happy hour is ever going to be the same for me.

  4. I know a little girl who repeats "Hooters, Hooters" in a sing-songy voice whenever she sees the owl on the sign! Kids are pretty funny.
