A couple of years ago the son of a distant cousin of mine who had moved to the States in the 1960s came over to find out where his family had come from. He came with his wife and their two sons, aged thirteen and fifteen. For part of their stay in the UK they had hired a holiday cottage in the Peak District. The day they arrived at the cottage they drove to the nearest market town to buy groceries. Amongst which they purchased some two-litre bottles of various drinks for the boys. Amongst their selection were two bottles of Strongbow cider. Whilst in town they noticed there was a concert on that evening, for which they booked tickets, the boys declaring they would prefer to stay at the cottage and watch TV.  

Late that evening, after they had been at the concert, they arrived at the cottage to find two very intoxicated boys. It had never occurred to them that something labelled as cider could be alcoholic. 

 

Nice one NIgel! You've got a flash - or with a bit of expansion, a damn good short. If the former, please cross post it to the flash forum, as otherwise it'll be lost.

Thanks Camy. Unfortunately, I do not have the time, nor the inclination, to expand it. If anyone else feels like taking it up, they are welcome.
