Drinking and Driving

A couple of weeks ago, after school Aidan and I went to Peets coffee and Safeway before heading home. I picked up my much needed afternoon coffee, then we went into Safeway to pick up a few things for dinner. During this time I still had my coffee in hand. We were at the checkout stand, when Aidan started this conversation with me.

Aidan: "There's no drinking and driving. Mom you're always drinking and driving (he's referring to my perpetual coffee drink in hand especially while driving), and you're not suppose to. They say you aren't suppose to drink and drive."

Me totally embarrassed as I look around and notice there's quite a few people in earshot of our conversation.: "Aidan, you mean my coffee?"

Aidan: "Yeah"

Me, looking around again hoping everyone heard that: " When they say, no drinking and driving, they're talking about alcohol not coffee" I proceed to explain to him that alcohol is beer and wine. Then have to explain that alcohol sometimes make adults sleepy, or dizzy so it's dangerous to drive. I was glad that we managed to get that all cleared up while still standing at the checkout stand, so anyone questioning what my dear son was confessing about me, now knew it was all about my terrible coffee addiction.

As to where Aidan got the no drinking and driving message, I'm still not sure. I can only imagine he read it somewhere. This is what happens when you have a 6 year old who is a proficient reader but not proficient in worldly matters.
