    They’re not growing up so fast. They’re growing up TOO fast.

    No, I think they are finding out that being grown-ups is overrated.

    Yes,happy hour another fun and costly function of growing up. Buying rounds for freeloaders / sorry- friends. Next will be getting a car, but you need a job to pay for the car and need the car to get to the job. The circle of cash flow.

    Actually, I find it hard to believe that girls the ages that Holly and Alex are don’t know what coffee tastes like. Is it that usual in the USA and Canada? My children were offered milky tea or coffee in the morning from when they were about three year’s old. They were never allowed to have sugary, fizzy drinks or sugary breakfast cereals that are chemically enhanced with artificial colourants; they had a choice of milk, Milo, tea, coffee or fresh fruit juice. I was careful to never put more than one small spoon of sugar in any of the drinks they were offered. Coffee and tea are not unhealthy in small quantities for young children, as long as they are not consumed shortly before their bedtime.

    As far as I can figure out anything good or fun was seen as sinful and bad for you in early American history.

    Yeah! My maternal grandmother lived with us for some years, and I loved her coffee laced with Borden’s Milk.

    The rules: 1. If it tastes good- spit it out. 2. if it’s fun- you must feel guilty about it. 3. you must learn to think you are superior to the rest of the world- all the while bitching about how everyone has it better than you.

    Here is the ‘States’, Holly and Alix have less than snowballs chance in Death Valley(in August) of surviving until noon, of getting into a bar for ‘Happy Hour’ and if they did and were found out, the establishment would lose their license. Plus Val would not be a ’Happy Camper(Mother) !! !

    Yes, exactly, why is it only an hour?

    It starts as an hour. In time, it doesn’t stop there…
