Babies and Beer
Some people think that it is funny to take pictures of babies with beer. I don't. Not after what happened at our house. Stella saw this picture of her god-sister Juliana and wanted a "new ba-ba" of her own. Look at what I came home to:So Stella and I had to have our first father-daughter talk.I laid out the Hansonian principle that "wine is meant to gladden the heart of man" (Ps. 104:15) and that the particular (i.e. wine) can stand for the genus (i.e. alcoholic beverages in general, including Old Brown Dog Ale) as a rhetorical trope. Stella said she wanted some time to think about what a trope is.
