in the last paragraph, are you talking about the U.S. of A.? I went to college here and I witnessed some really ridiculous situations, when 21-year-old people went crazy because they could finally drink. meanwhile, Europeans were just laughing.

Miss Understood

Well said! It would be a completely pointless exercise trying to enforce it.

I stayed with a French family when I was 13, and I found it rather bizarre that the children had wine with every meal, yet coffee was completely forbidden!

Completely changing the subject...have you thought about having a blogspot blog and just having a link to this website on it? That way, people will be able to click your name on the comments you leave, and find their way here. Just a thought!


I remember my parents discouraged me from drinking coffee. they used to say that it would make my teeth yellow and that I still have time to enjoy it. they stopped when I was 16-17. and this is why I get so surprised when I see American kids (13-15 y.o.) in Starbucks drinking a black coffee...


I don't drink alcohol or coffee, but not due to my parents interference, I just don't like the taste. My mother was always encouraging to have a taste of whatever alcoholic beverage she was having during my childhood, and seemed disappointed that I wasn't interested in having something that would "put hair on my chest".

It's Me... Maven

PS: I hear absinthe tastes like licorice or anisette.
