My five year old son, Mark, asked yesterday, "Dad, how come alcohol doesn't kill grown ups?"
He asked this because I had just finished making rum and cokes (rum and Diet Coke for me--down 30 pounds in about 50 days)for some dinner guests.
I told him that alcohol can indeed kill grown ups, but since they're bigger it takes a lot more to do so.
"Well," he asked, "then how old do you have to be to drink whisky without dying?"
I told him that 21 is the legal drinking age.
"Is that how old you are when you grow hair around your penis?" he replied.
I nearly wet myself--hair and all.
