Yes, if you’re wondering if you read that correctly, it does say “wine” on that wooden toy. I love teaching preschool.
I think I may be fairly safe with this story, which took place in my Sunday school kindergarten class:
I had just distributed several small cups which we would be using for an art project. One child got a wild hair and began chanting “Beer for sale!” Of course, the others picked up on it within seconds and only seconds after that I called out, “WE DON’T HAVE BEER IN SUNDAY SCHOOL!”
Whether they couldn’t hear me over their own gleeful chorus or whether the temptation to continue something so deliciously forbidden was just too great I really couldn’t say. So I called out again, “WE DON’T HAVE BEER IN SUNDAY SCHOOL!” this time adding, “You can talk about wine if you need to!” They immediately changed their product line from beer to wine, but then ended their business venture abruptly after only another chant or two. Apparently school sanctioned alcohol isn't as much fun.
