Sunny kids' commentary

The other day we were reading one of the scripture stories where the Nephites gave freely of their wine to the Lamanites. The Lamanites got "drunk" and the Nephites were able to arm the prisoners within and surround them from without.

We were trying to explain wine and drunkenness to Scott. We were saying things like it makes you tired and sleepy, makes you make bad choices that you wouldn't usually make and act funny.

Scott's little light bulb went on as he said, "It's just like Love Potion #9!"

Let's hum along and see
". . .I held my nose I closed my eyes, I took a drink.
I didn't know if it was day or night.
I started kissing everything in sight.
But when I kissed the cop down on 34th and Vine,
He broke my little bottle of Love Potion #9."

Brilliant! "Yep, it's just like Love Potion #9!"

It always made me wonder what those righteous Nephites were doing with wine that makes you drunk anyway!
