Steph:  Hey, Derek, when you were younger, did you ever go to spring break in Canada?

Derek:  Ya know, I never did.

Steph:  It’s so funny. Cause, like, I went there last weekend. There were all these young, um, college students there because the drinking age is younger.

Derek:  Oh yeah. So Canada was flooded by Americans.

Steph:  Totally. A lot of college boys were up there, ya know, partying up.

Derek:  Oh yeah? Looking for all the young Canadian girls?

Steph:  Exactly. Just kinda hanging out. Ya know, going a long the streets, laughing, drinking, having a great time. You know. You know the type.

Derek:  Oh yeah. Definitely.

Steph:  Yeah. So, um, that was kind of interesting. I got to watch them all weekend.

Derek:  That sounds interesting. They were all having fun then?

Steph:  Totally. It made me wish I was 19 again.

Derek:  Maybe someday you can go back.

Steph:  That’s true. Maybe. You never know.

I remember going to Canada before I was of age to drink. I went there with a group of my friends and we got all excited about drinking a beer in a real bar.
In America, as you may or may not know, the drinking age is 21. In Canada it’s 19.
This can lead to some problems because sometimes the younger Americans don’t know their limits when it comes to drinking.
They go to a place where it’s legal to drink and get rowdy and make fools of themselves.
Pretty funny.
