when you were a tenager, where did you hide your drinks?

We are painting the children's room and wife asked me to remove the air register. I removed it and I noticed an object inside. I reached to see what it was and this is what I found.

The previous owner had a teenage son as far as we understood. My guess is that he put it there. Or maybe from the owner before them. I tried to find an expiration/manufacturing date on the bottle to get an idea of how old it was, but I couldn't see one.

If you were hiding drinks from your parents when you were a teenager, where did you hide them?

I didn't, really. But I hid my next door neighbors pot in my bedroom for him. His parents weren't cool with it. My mom didn't exactly like it, but she tolerated our pot smoking. I guess she preferred me doing it at home instead of out in a car or somewhere (although I did that too). At one point, because she was tired of trying to get my attention from downstairs when I was up in my room with the music going, we rigged a yellow light bulb above my door with a switch at the base of the stairs so all she had to do was flash the light when she wanted me.

Or maybe it was from some construction worker who was too lazy to take trash out or maybe hide it from the boss. The label had calories info but no exp date.

My parents encouraged me to drink a lot and yell "woo hoooooooo" at almost anything except shortages of booze.

In the fridge.

When I was a ten-ager I didn't drink booze.
We were allowed a beer. Did not like. Still don't.

In the Fridge. This was the only drink we cared about. In a Tupperware pitcher. Ahhh Summer. The only caveat was that my mother rationed sugar like we effin lived during World War II. "Don't use up all of my sugar!!!" Jeeze mom.

My wife's mother only let them use 1/2 cup of sugar, but she figured she had it pretty good compared to the girl down the street. Her mother didn't use any sugar at all.

At college. I didn't start drinking until after I finished high school.

(But I did my best to make up for lost time.)

Yup. The legal drinking age was 18 back then. But I eventually became a teetotaler thanks to Mr. Migraines e

Hide drinks? Are you serious? We did make a very minor effort to hide pot, but my mother found it and didn't care that much (pot back then was much weaker than the current drug).



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Are you kidding? I fermented hard cider in the kitchen. I shared it with my mom, and she added it to cheese fondue.

Us kids never had any extra to stash!

High school, Mogen-David MD, chilled. We would guzzle the bottle until empty. (We then threw the bottle out the car window so no one would know we were tipsy). smiley-laughing001

Never had any to hide. Had a friend with a fake ID who would buy beer whenever we wanted it.

Had no interest. Drinking age was 18, senior year of HS and college was early enough, but lots of beer and oysters at college in SC.
