Okay...only one more. Too funny Babs...one of my kids did something similar. She was about 18 months to 2 years old and she would always ask for a glass of "hoyse". We figured out it meant water but didn't know why. One night at dinner I looked at my husband's glass . He likes to drink a very large glass of water at dinner and he had a beer stein with a "horse" embossed on it. To this day when we want water we call it a "glass of hoyse".
PS. I am loving ALL of these stories. What a hoot!
