And to think, when I was younger, I would go to the liquor store with my parents and I would pick out all the wine for them simply because I had studied it and knew better. These days, you can't even take a minor into a liquor store! WTF?! Incredible stupidity. I was once on a business trip with my father -- the company lawyers set me up, at 14, with my own suite because it was my birthday and my father said he wasn't going to attend to a certain matter on that day, so they said, ok, we need you, what if we....? He thought I would be amused so he assented. Anyway, along with some of his colleagues, we went out at dinner, and my father asked me to pick a bottle of wine for the table. Considering everyone's dishes, I ordered it. The manager came over all flustered and upset, and apologizing profusely, said that he, regretfully, couldn't serve me wine. My father simply explained that ordering of wine didn't imply drinking of same. The manager was very confused and hilarity was shared by all at the table. Likewise, none of the foregoing implied that I drank while underage; I just liked to be knowledgeable about things that seemed somewhat illicit though not illegal or immoral. This has served me well. ~ Huntsman
