an errant squeak

In the car on the way home:

"Mommy, my juice is squeaking!" (Damian was drinking watered down juice from a covered cup with a straw.)

"I can hear it." (It was in fact squeaking. Most likely the straw wasn't attached firmly enough and was letting in air.)

"Next time you go to the grocery store, you need to buy edible oil to make it stop squeaking."

He reminded me again as we left the car half an hour later. I'll have to put it on my list. Juice bottle lubricator, a/k/a edible oil. (Or maybe I'll just fasten the straw on more securely next time. But shhh, don't tell Damian.)
