Response to Taverner (Original post)

22. My impression

was formed by what I saw in my parents' household. They always had liquor on hand -- various types and brands. They offered drinks to any of their friends who came over. It seemed to me that it was some kind of status thing: if you had a large variety of liquor to offer, it somehow gave the impression that you were rich enough to buy large amounts of the stuff just to have on hand in case of visitors. The conflict in our home was that my father was an alcoholic, my parents weren't rich, so when my father drank up the booze on hand, my mother got pissed off at him because she would have to spend money to refill the stash so she could go on impressing her friends.
