Making A Mockery Of The Language

| Related | May 28, 2014

(We are on the way to a cocktail party with my nine-year-old niece and four-year-old son in the back seat.)

Niece: “Can we have a cocktail at the party?”

Wife:  “No, sweetheart, they’re grown-up drinks. But you can have a mocktail.”

Niece:  “What’s that?”

Wife:  “That’s a blend of juices and fizzy drinks specially for kids.”

Niece:  “Yay!”

Son:  “If [Niece] is having a mocktail, then I’m having one too!”

Niece:  “That’s decided then: the kids get mock and the adults get cock.”
