SAN DIEGO — A Georgia mother was trying to recover from an embarrassing mistake recently after she accidentally packed an alcoholic beverage in her high school daughter’s lunch.
Mckenzie Strange, a 17-year-old junior told Buzzfeed she opened her school lunch Monday to find her mom had accidentally packed a Four Loko for her to drink.
Confused by her mother’s choice, Strange contacted her mom to find out what happened.
“I texted my mom about it and she couldn’t believe the mistake she made; she was half asleep when packing my lunch and thought it was a Peace Tea,” Strange told Buzzfeed.
Mckenzie said the drink belonged to her brother and was in a refrigerator her family doesn’t often use.
Mckenzie tweeted about the mistake: “so my mom packed me a four loko for lunch …”
Her tweet included a photo of the drink and her conversation with her mom.
