Orange Juice…

So this is a funny one…My parents had a party one Saturday night when we lived in Indiana, and many of their friends liked screwdrivers. Mom and Dad, being quite efficient, made pitchers of screwdrivers in advance of the gathering. It was a very successful event.

Sunday morning came, and all six kids clustered around the breakfast table getting started on the meal. When Dad took his seat, he took a sip of the orange juice and said, “Jesus Christ, Joni! What are you doing feeding these kids screwdrivers?”

Yes, we had our first taste of liquor. We all thought the OJ tasted a bit funny, but no one said anything. Amy was quite young, and as I recall, she drank a couple of glasses. She was probably unsteady on her feet for a while after that.

We laugh about that one to this day…


Stay groovy…
