- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
We went to dinner at a local brewpub, and were about to test 5 year-old Gracie when I noticed she had oil pastel on her fingers that didn't wash off. I offered her one of her alcohol wipes to get her finger cleaner. She was hungry and impatient, so while I was fishing through her kit, she started chanting, a bit too loudly, "Where's my alcohol!?! Where's my alcohol?! Give me alcohol!!" Needless to say, we got some REALLY strange looks from people around us.
