This morning Aubrey was snuggling in the bed with her Shuggie while I slept soundly. (Hallelujah!)
They were looking through ads which had been sent to the house and Aubrey was quizzing my mother about what each ad said and picking out the letters she recognized.
There was an ad for teeth whitening, Aubrey asked Shuggie, “What does that say?”
“Brush your teeth twice a day,” Shuggie told her.
Aubrey flipped the ad over and saw another ad, this one for some sort of beer. It had a party scene on it and everyone had a bottle in their hands. “Does that make your teeth whiter, Shuggie?” “No,” my mother answered her, “it doesn’t.”
Aubrey immediately said, “Does it make you dance?” Dumbfounded my mother said she guessed it did. It’s a good thing she didn’t ask me, I would have told her it’ll make you howl at the moon if you drink too much of it!
