I was talking on the phone with my grandma the other day. She was telling me how a daughter of one of my cousins was an unfortunate passenger in a drunk driving accident. My grandma proceeded to tell me she was probably drinking as well but just not the driver. I asked how old she was.
“Oh, I think she was 17 or so. You know, the age you really start drinking.” At this point I was chuckling inside because it was funny to hear her say 17 is the drinking age.
She proceeded. “They were at a big outdoor party with a kegger.” I repeated the phrase to make sure I heard her right. “A kegger?” I asked. “Yes, a kegger, a kegger. A lot of alcohol.”
She repeated it as if I didn’t know what it was. I repeated it because I didn’t know she knew a whole lot about it. I laughed out loud. My 93 year old grandmother used the word kegger in our conversation. Definitely a highlight!
