Well, I'm sure I *could* be talking about about Hurricane Irene which is on track to hit us over the weekend. Most of the projected tracks are showing it going directly over us. Thankfully, flooding shouldn't be an issues since we're far enough inland, and at the top of a hill. However, wind and power outages are pretty much a given, I think. So, who would have thunk it...we're preparing for a hurricane.
But, I digress. This post wasn't meant to be about a hurricane in the meteorological sense.
I overheard my 4 year old singing in the playroom the other day:
"pour me a hurricane before I go insane. It's only half past twelve, but I don't care. It's 5 o'clock somewhere." --Pause "MOMMMMY? What's a hurricane?"
Do I tell her about the weather phenomenon type or this kind?
Clearly, I explain that it's a drink for adults.
What?! She'll have plenty of time to learn about hurricanes this weekend while we're sitting in the dark in the middle of one.
