My occasionally snarky thoughts on everything from motherhood, politics, life and current events. Cocktails are sometimes mandatory. Bottoms up!

What's in a name?

Is a bong still a bong -- even if you're not allowed to call it a bong? From Mr. Vanderleun we get an answer -- well sort of...

"You can't say that here or I'll have to throw you out of the store," says a stern voice from the front.

Slowly I turned.

"I beg your pardon?"

It's the clerk who is glaring at us from behind the counter. "I said you can't use the B-word in here. They are "waterpipes."

Ohhhhkaaaay.... But it sounds a little delusional to me. Or maybe that's the whole idea! Needless to say, logic doesn't live there -- but its absence makes for a funny post!
