Doesn't everyone wish this was an appropriate response when offered a drink?
I guess only in a perfect world.
This past summer a guy I met offered to buy me a drink, but it was really late and I didn't want one. It seemed like a perfectly reasonable idea to substitute the drink he offered with a hotdog from the street vendor. Although I didn't think it was weird at the time, and we both enjoyed some great hotdogs, looking back that probably isn't something I should request again.
You think they would have covered this topic in at least one of
the two cotillion classes I attended as a child.
