The administrative assistant walked them back to the office and asked if they wanted any water, tea or coffee.
One says "No - we're not old."
When I heard that, I felt a pang deep in my heart. Which beverage choice makes you old? Was it the type of beverage or the time of day that made the drink a choice of old people?
Since I guzzled water and coffee pretty much all through college (along with regular mountain dew - ew!), I can only assume they consume no beverages in the afternoon.
