Water wit

When you make homemade wine, you must use bottled water to assure there is no bacteria or chemical in the base fluid, or it might ruin the batch as it ferments.
So, the other day while we were at Walmart, I decided to pick up a bunch of water for my winemaking escapades. They sell water in big 5 gallon  or 2 1/2 jugs.

I filled my cart with as much water as it could hold, about 8 of the huge jugs and pushed it to the checkout. Mark and Kent were there waiting for me with the things they had picked up in the store.

Kent looked at my cart and said, “Heck Mom, what do you need all that water for? Are you going to start giving bottled water to your chickens or something?”

“Of course. And I’ve decided only to give perrier to my peacock,” I said with a lifted eyebrow.

“Well, it’s a lot of water,” Kent said.

I patted the plastic jugs. “You see, son. I am going to turn this water into wine.”

Mark grinned. “I happen to know someone who got really famous doing just that.” he said.
And he and Kent laughed, and slapped eachother five. “Good one, dad.”

I’m so glad my interests are such a source of such amusement for this family.
