    Ha! That waiter looks a lot like Wally’s nephew Andy.

    I may be over age, but I would like a Shirley Temple.

    When I was a kid, and we ate at LaBarbera’s Italian restaurant, sometimes my parents got wine with dinner. If they did, they brought me a little drink too. Clear, sort of fruity…

    Good move, Phil! Discriminating taste with the IPA, AND a “cocktail” for the girls! Shirley Temple can be explained later. As for the ring, this COULD be the moment! Sets up right, and has the girls involved also.

    But a moment like this usually portends the end of a comic. I hope not! Too many “step-” story lines available.

    Nationality? American. Race? Black. So’s his aunt, who lives down the block from the Stones. And Wally’s Jewish.

    At least a Shirley Temple is easier to order than a Virgin Mary.

    This could be how it all starts. These are the kids that will be searching for parties when they get to college. They’ll say it’s to meet people and be social and all that, but it’s really for the buzz of alcohol. Even with raucous background music these parties are gloomy as kids quietly soak up cheap beer to kill stress in their lives over their studies and broken families. But drinking laws are enforced more now so it might be different.
