YOU HEARD IT HERE!
I took my 21 year old nephew out for dinner for his birthday and we ordered his first (legal) beer. I’ve been debating whether it makes me a cool aunt or a woman contributing to the delinquency of a recent minor. Granted, I didn’t know until the end of the meal that he’s not a beer fan (so I had to sip some of his…you know…I don’t like to waste good alcohol. <G>). He barely had any. It made me feel good and bad at the same time. Good in that I shouldn’t worry that taking him out for alcohol is going to make him a lush and bad that I forced my beer loving ways on the poor boy/man.
I’ve always been of the mind that if the youngsters of my family are going to drink, I’d rather be around for it then have them do it behind my back.
So tell me… have any of you contributed to the delinquency of a minor? Feel free to change the names to protect the innocent!
Remember, you heard it here.
