Alcohol and Video Games

Last night, I was playing golf on the wii with my son Night. He was talking with me about another video game we own-Mario Golf on the N64. He was asking me if I have ever played Mario Golf. I told him that I had, but I wasn't very good at it. He then said that Mario Golf is a lot like golf on the wii, but there is no booze on the wii.

"WHAT?!" Surely, I misheard him, right?

"What did you say, honey?"

"There is no booze in this game of golf."

Thinking that I was going to have to have a serious talk with Josh about how he plays video games with the kids, I asked, "What is booze?"

"It is the character in Mario-the ghost."

"Oh!" Phew. Boo s.
