I walk up to the counter at the liquor store today holding two bottles of wine and the older gentleman behind the counter greets me with, "My dear, are you old enough to drink?". I am a bit taken aback, but flattered, and reply, "Yes, but I wish I wasn't-- I'm 29", for lack of something wittier to say. He pauses, smiles, and says, "Ah, you haven't even reached your best years.... Your 30s and 40s will be the best."
Could he be some kind of prophet?
In any case, I needed to hear that today.
