Theme Thursday: Red Ribbon Week & Worcester Sauce


Although October has passed, Theme Thursday's weekly topic is "Ribbon," and I am reminded of the constant fight against drugs during Red Ribbon week and the rest of the year. An ongoing anti-drug program in the schools teaches grade schoolers not to do drugs. This educational program is highlighted by Red Ribbon Week where students and teachers proclaim themselves to be drug free through wearing red, painting their faces red, or launching red balloons.

Anti-drug education had been so strong in my daughter's school that, years ago, she had a fit when I put a bottle of Worchester sauce in my basket at the grocery story. Since the kids were taught that alcohol was a drug, as soon as I picked up the Lea Perrins, Erica screamed––at a store awakening level mind you, "Drugs! You have drugs!"

I tried in vain to explain that Worcester sauce does not constitute drugs. Even if the bottle had contained alcohol, I was, and am, certainly old enough to drink it. I couldn't convince Erica that is was okay for me to buy Worcester sauce no matter what I said.

Kids take everything so literally and am learning that each and everyday with my own two girls. Truly enjoyed this and could picture my own someday doing something like this.

My son had drug education at school this year and went around telling my husband that he couldn't have wine at church anymore :) Kids are funny!

Worchester is a gateway sauce.

Really the best fight against drugs is prevention.

Oh that is too funny. I guess it does look like a bottle of wine, LOL. Did you ever take NyQuil and have her tell you that it has alcohol in it? I know people who have been told they should not take it because of the alcohol in it. I have never heard of this Red Ribbon thing. Although my girls might be too old for this program to have gone on when they were in school.

Anyway I thank you ever so much for making a humorous post about ribbons and for sharing it with us. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and stay off the sauce, ha ha.

God bless.

Did you buy the Worcester in the end? Honestly, I didn't even know it had alcohol in it until now.
