I would love a drive through liquor store, for a myriad of reasons, but the main one is that dragging your kids into a store full of shiny glass bottles is a complete nightmare. When my kids were still in the touch-everything-shiny phase, I had one time that it was a necessity (or near to one) to go into a liquor store. My kids had never been there before. I was having a party, and my husband had been sent out of town for his work on short notice.
My older kid was in a stage where she declared every single thing to be her favorite. We walked into the liquor store, and she declared, "This is my FAVORITE store!" in a loud voice. The cashier was still laughing when I went up to pay for my wine.
So that particular story is funny, but most of the time, until recently, I avoid buying wine at all unless I absolutely have to. I'll ask a friend to pick it up for me, or I'll go after my husband gets home from work. But it would be wonderful if there were a drive-through.
I find that hilarious! But yes, all the shiny bottles, I want to touch them all! And I know ours has lots of candy too. And if I understand children correctly, they enjoy candy.
Now, here's where my state keeps getting odd to outsiders, the whole time I was reading your story I was like "Just go to the grocery store", yes in our grocery stores you can buy all the same alcohol you can buy in a liquor store. Right there, usually near the soda aisle. Sometimes the selection is a bit more limited, but you'll find all your basics, anything crazy popular, and seasonal specialties. I've had several conversations of "I want to get something to drink with dinner", "Ok, we'll pick something up at the grocery store", "No I mean alcoholic", "Right, like I said, grocery store", "No, not like beer, like liquor or wine", "Yeah, all the grocery stores here have that" and then
, usually I just take them to prove to it to them. And the only time you can buy booze is between 2am-6am, used to be until noon on Sunday but we changed that.
