A few nights ago, my housemates and I went to Crane Alley, local pool joint. I hear it has good burgers. For my first legal purchase of alcohol in this country, I was carded by a bored young lady. The mixture of "!" and "!!" on my face was recognizable for a blink of a second and then I pretended to be casual about it. Because I live with adults now. I am an adult. My drink came with an orange slice hanging off the side. Wheat beer, he said.
