Maybe a couple of light beers. I will buy them for you at the supermarket.


Absolutely not! You are not to take or drink any alcohol while you are at the party.


Well, we have talked about allowing you to have some low-alcohol beer at home, but since then recent studies have shown that there is no safe level of drinking for young people. In fact they say that the safest option for people under the age of 18 is to not drink at all. We will give Cam’s parents a call to see what rules they have given to drinking alcohol at the party.

Oh, you poor thing! Did you have a big night? Looks like you have a massive hangover—let’s get you something to eat.


Look at you! We are disgusted with

your behavior and you are grounded

for a month.



Hello, Joey. It’s obvious you drank last night. You need to be drinking lots of water today and we need to talk about what happened last night because we are worried about you and disappointed that you may have broken a rule we agreed on together — we are happy to sit down with you after lunch.
