“Mama Needs Some Wine”

October 8, 2014

We were wandering around Cost Plus World Market on Saturday because we happened to be in the area.

If you’ve never been, it’s an import store…kind of like a more affordable / cooler Pier 1? Hmmmm… I don’t know if that’s the best way to describe it. Regardless, it’s pretty fun to stop in every once in a while and wander around.

They have a nice wine selection, which is flanked by a rack of clever party napkins. These were a hit with the kids as I stood nearby and looked at wine, and Kenny stood nearby and looked at his phone.

Gavin thought the “Mama needs some wine” napkins were hilarious, particularly because I was actually looking at wine at the very moment he spotted them.

Grace started giggling along with the rest of us. Then she quickly stopped and furrowed her brow. Our early reader was trying to figure out the one word on the napkin she didn’t know: wine. She said, “Wait. What do they say again? Mama needs some weenie?”

Um, no.

That’s not what they say at all.

And if they did, we’d probably find them at like Spencer’s Gifts, not World Market!

Dear heavens.

Kenny and I exchanged horrified looks as she repeated her question again. And because we’re pretty immature, we couldn’t hold in our building amusement and burst into hysterics. Both of us – even Kenny, who usually keeps his cool – especially when it comes to those type of jokes.

Unreal. Only Grace. 🙂

After calming down, I gently told her that “wine” is not a word you can sound out, but it’s sight word, and told her how to say it. She said, “Ohhhhhh. Now I get it!” and started laughing.

Oh my.

So glad the real funny moment was completely lost on both of them. Hahaha. 😉
