Marinara Socks?

Marijuana imagery is everywhere in Amsterdam, and we smell it every day. It has provided lots of opportunities for us to talk to the kids  about culture and how different countries have different thoughts about things. (We had that talk as well in the Teen Facts area at NEMO, as K was shocked that you only had to be 12 to get in.)

The other day was we were walking down the street K said, "Look mom, do you want some marinara socks?"

Her brother rolled his eyes and reminded her its marijuana not marinara.  Poor girl, now every time one of us sees pot leaf socks for sale, she hears, "Look K - marinara socks!"

She's been a good sport about it though, and it's given us all a good laugh.
