    All it took was a few tears on the phone with Dad, and crisis may have been averted

    July 24, 2007

    Dad:  Kris, WHAT’S WRONG?

    It’s cheap.  I know.  But when you are one of four Daddy’s girls, sometimes you just gotta call out the big guns.

    K:  Dad.  They spelled “cocktail” wrong on my shot glass.

    Dad:  WHAT???

    K:  The people whose business it is to sell millions of glasses specifically used for alcohol spelled “cocktail” “coktail.”

    Dad:  Oh, honey.  You’re kidding.  I’ll go over there.  Just tell me what you want me to do.

    K:  They won’t let me TALK TO ANYONE.

    45 minutes later I had an email with a phone number and a confirmation that they would redo the entire order by tomorrow and have it ready for my father to pick up on Wednesday and my mother to bring WITH HER on the plane on Thursday to Chicago.

    My mother.  The teetotaler.  Bringing 200 shot glasses to Chicago.  I love her so much.  She would call it loving me for who I am. 

    So if you are at Blogher, come on over and get your shot glasses.  I’ll be hanging with the button girl, the tatt girl and her husband the pool boy. 

    If you can’t make it Blogher, shoot me off an email at babybrewing at gmail dot com and when I get back with the new and improved glasses, I send  you one in the mail for free!  Cause I’m nice like that.

    Edited:  OK, there are some left but it’s getting too pricey to ship these bad boys.  I should have made Mommy Needs a Cocktail plastic cups!  You can now find them for sale ($3, free shipping) over here

      THAT is “the big guns” at its finest.

      And? I won’t be singing at Blogher, but I’ll have a great big hug ready for you!

      Can you believe it has been a year??? WOW!

      We’ll have a coktail. Or wait – I’ll have a margarita and YOU can have a coktail. hehe

      Save me a shot glass. I just read that drinking+nursing = not a problem and I plan on testing the theory.

      Pick me! Pick me! I want a shot glass. Since I’ve actually commented and e-mailed you I guess I don’t qualify as a lurker anymore.

      Thanks for the update on where your site had gone – seemed weird not to get a feed for so long. Have fun at Blogher!

      PS – I actually moved my blog to typepad – it’s now officially at

      PPS – does this qualify as an e-mail or do I have to do that too?

      I am not a mommy yet….but I want a shot glass. The prospect of future discussions on the correct spelling of “cok” or “cock” is too good for me to pass up….(wink). Have a great time this weekend and your mom ROCKS. (Dad too)

      How about a shot glass for a single woman mothering her mother? Wait…do you have anything bigger? (Love the idea and hope you had a great time in Chicago.)

      Am I too late for a shot glass? Can I still have one? Pretty please? They are sooo very me! I would LOVE one!
