    In my culture, we love to DRINK (and are up the par with the Irish) and we always use a version of “wee” when we order a drink because we always pretend like it’s something we NEVER do and I’m just going to have a “wee brandy” and so on.. it has found its way into everything now. I definitely relate to this word a lot.
