Lunchtime Laughter

December 8, 2005

A few days ago, I was reading a book outloud to Alley and a character in the story was described as having red eyes and slurred speech. Alley wasn’t sure what that meant so I explained to her that sometimes when people have had too much alcohol to drink, their eyes are red. Today at lunch, Alley noticed that one of Liam’s eyes was slightly bloodshot. She said, “Mommy, Liam’s eye looks red…I wonder if he’s drunk.” The look on poor Liam’s face told me I had to assure him he wasn’t before I explained to them both that a slightly red eye once in awhile was a completely normal occurence and not necessarily a sign of drunkenness, at least not in a four year old!
