The Living Without Series

This is a series of posts that I wrote back in 2006 on living with less stuff. Check them out: liv011Living #2liv031liv04

I was looking at a cocktail shaker in Wally World tonight.  I know.  Why does Wally World have a cocktail shaker?


Here in Kansas the only alcohol you can buy in a grocery store is beer.  All other alcoholic beverages have to be purchased at a liquor store, except on Sundays, then the liquor stores are closed.


If you move away from Kansas and forget all these laws and New Year’s Eve is on a Sunday, you are screwed.  I know this.


Anyway, I was looking at a cocktail shaker thinking it was a strange item for Wally World to be selling and I turned to my daughter and jokingly said,


“Ellen, I think it’s time you tried a cocktail.”


And then she said…are you ready?


This is my 16 year old daughter mind you.  The same child that has tagged along to many, many parties with us where beverages of all sorts are being served and she says to me,


“Why?  They’re just water with an olive in it.”


Have I told you lately how much I love my sweet naive girl?

Water with an olive in it….priceless.
