"CocoChinnis everybody?"

The funniest thing happened last night. My lovely wife and little girl picked me up from work. I was exhausted due to wading through all of the drama of the day, my lovely wife (who IS pregnant) was tired and it was nearly 7:30 p.m. when we left the Village office. So I mentioned that we should just go for mexican food and I would be glad to pick up the tab on this one. So we drive a couple of miles away to grab some good Mexican food over on the more ritzy part of town.

Once we get there and have a seat, Lovely and I were chatting and making lovey-dovey looks at one another. Then all of a sudden Little B starts talking. I look over to make sure that she is included in the conversation and she keeps saying something, but we couldn’t figure it out. Lovely and I are making our most educated guesses on what she was saying. Finally, Lovely blurts out, “I need a mop??” Then I clued in…it was the music!!! Feliz Navidad! It was playing on the Mexi-cali muzak. We laughed hardily!!!

After the eating, we decided to walk off our overeating. Went to the bookstore a few doors down…Little B and I pal around nearly the whole time. We had a blast just playing with the toys and reading books from the kids’ section. It was some good Pop Pop and Goose time. As we are walking out she sees the coffee section of the store and asks for some “coffee milk.” I tell her that I would make some when we got home.

We hopped in the Jeep and kept kidding around with the “I need a mop”…then, out of nowhere, Little B holds up her hand like she is holding a cup and asks, “Cocochinnis, everybody?!?”


Then it clicks…We had rented Santa Claus 3 where at one point Jack Frost (Martin Short) asks for a Cocochino (instead of a cappachino). That prompted a quick stop at the Celestial Cowboy for a “Cocochino” for my little munchkin.
