Life Sucks, So We Drink.

It was a weekend.I saw young and old couples, and legally-eligible-boys and girls coming in and out.
I noticed one boy hanging around the shop.Being a minor, he is not eligible to come in. It is not legal to sell him; if caught, it is punishable with a fine of dollars 2000.
He approached me and asked very politely, can you do me a favour? I said, yes.
He had 30 dollars in his hand. Can you buy a Wild Turkey?
I was shocked. It is a rye whiskey. A teenager, may be an 8th grader, is asking me to buy a bottle of whisky.
I was really shocked, and I don’t know how long I stared at him.
That’s OK , he said , then walked away saying thanks.
