Under-Age Drinking

Dear Heather,
We are sitting around on a Friday night and one of our friends is out of town with his parents. We are bored and were thinking of throwing a party at his house. We aren't 21 and don't have any alcohol. Do you have any suggestions as to how we could get some?

Dear Sarah and Lisa,
First of all, do you know anyone, perhaps an older brother or sister, who could get you some alcohol? This would make the evening much more interesting. Often times, when alcohol is involved, people become more animated, more attractive, more exciting. Things that otherwise had no meaning or significance, suddenly seem so important. If you don't have an older relative, just approach someone from a discrete location outside any supermarket that sells beer, and ask them if they'll buy it for you. Sometimes the kindness and generosity of strangers is so surprising.
