My friend “Sally” is having a milestone birthday pretty soon and is invited just a few friends, five or six of us, to a small pizza place near her house. She wants to pick up the tab for whatever we order…
…unless we order beer or wine. Then we’re on our own.
Two or three of us may want a bit of alcohol and we’re willing to pay for it, but we’re puzzled by Sally’s conditions. She is far from destitute, serves beer and wine to guests in her home, and drinks an occasional mimosa although she doesn’t much care for alcoholic drinks in general.
Am I missing something?
