A Case of Mistaken Identity

Ryan and I were deciding where to go for an impromptu lunchdate together yesterday, when Jane piped up:

Jane: "I want to go to Peni$ today. The place I went for my birthday."

Me (confused, and smothering incredulous laughter): "You mean Wingers?"




Jane: "Yeah, Weiners. I want to go there."

Too, too funny. She must have been wondering what the connection was to chicken :).

My son used to say, when he was three..."mmm, mom, that is yummy in my peni$" TMI, even from a toddler!

NO. WAY.

I just died laughing.

Now, however, I am going to think of the P word everytime I drive by Wingers..

Melinda said...

So funny! When Ben says Wingers it always sounds like weiner.

That was rich! I love it! Your title says it perfectly ;)

Good thing you were able to smother your laughter...I usually get the giggles and snort and then I am doomed to explain to the 11 year old what I am laughing about or tell him that I am not going to tell him what I am laughing about which is always problematic because he will beg and annoy me to no end.

That is so funny! I wonder how it doesn't cross her mind as strange that a family restaurant is named after a "private part." Maybe you're taking your family to Hooters and so its all the same to her. :)

You can't make me laugh this hard while I'm pregnant... I can't hold my pee. That is so funny. Wingers is my hubby's fav place to eat... I'm calling it peni$ from now on.

Well there's one for the blog book...

Paige said...

Awesome. It's all about the peni$. And I like how for us, the peni$ is directly connected to the dollar sign, no?

WINGERS - Our favorite restaurant! Their wings are the best. I'm told I pronounce my "G's" hard - so I'm pretty sure there's no mistaken identity at our house.
