Hey, kid. Open this beer for me."
sounds like my kinda parenting. heheh. it's really a good thing i don't have children Oh this brings back barely suppressed memories.
My father was a quadraplegiac(all four limbs paralysed) so when I was about 6 , he trained me to hold up the whiskey bottles so he could guzzle from them. I later invented a long plastic tube /straw set- up which had one end taped to his bed and the other stuck in the bottle so he could fend for himself when I was out of the room. It was funny because at the beginning of the month when he got his VA check, he would drink the good stuff but near tthe end of the month when the dough was getting thin , he drank swill like Heaven Hill. Sometimes he liked Country Club malt liquor, which gave me a little trouble with those early pull tabs( my fingers were too small). I also lit cigarettes for him and flicked ashes too.
