I'm Not Really a Wine Drinker

I wanted to share this conversation with you that I had with my son, for those of you who don't know, he's nine.
Let me preface by telling you this, I have a bottle of wine that was bottled on July 4, 1976 in commemoration of our country's Bicentennial. Ok, that being said, here is the conversation:

Riley: Mom, are you ever going to drink that wine?
Me: No Ry, that's a very special bottle of wine. It was bottled on the 200th birthday of our country.
Riley: Oh, well you should drink it before you die. That would be a nice treat.
Me: Yeah, I guess it would.
Riley: Yeah, but you don't always know when you're going to die. But if you're in the hospital and you do know, then you should drink it.
Me: Ok, I'll make you a deal. When I'm an old lady and I'm in the hospital about to die, you bring me that bottle of wine and we'll share it.
Riley: No, I don't think so.
Me: Well, by then you'll be old enough to drink wine.
Riley: I'm not really a wine drinker.

I'm very happy to know that at nine years old, my son knows he isn't really a wine drinker!

LMAO! That's too funny!
Did you ask him what his preference was then?!

Ann said...

LMFAO!!! Is he more of a beer guy, then?!

Ms. BB: That was great! I enjoyed it so much that I had a customer standing here read it and she too laughed herself silly. Art Linkletter (sp?) wrote a book once called "Kids Say the Darnest Things" and it was full of these kinds of priceless statements from kids.

I'm going to be laughing about this one all day!


Lady R (Di) said...

Yep! Art Linkletter came to mind for me also.

It's good to know your not raising a whino! ;)

Mr. Motorcycle said...

LMFAO! way funny. Good to know at 9 Huh! I know at 9 I WAS as much of a wine drinker as I could get away with.

Motor-head Lady said...

Awww, that is really cute!
Most certainly it would have been perfect for Art Linkletter.

That's great! Kids say things sometimes that make you want to double over with laughter!

B.B. said...

I'm glad everyone was able to get a laugh, I thought it was funny!

"Joker" said...

That's just plain funny as hell :)

This is real funny B.B....what he didn't tell you is that he liked
Kid's got a head on his shoulder...unlike the rest of us...couldn't you tell...!

Mastercheif said...

That's awesome. I knew he wasn't a winer!

Unknown said...

Hilarious. Does he like girls yet? Unfortunately it probably won't be long until he likes a little bit of both!

I didn't say that.
