January 2013: At Wit's End
Welcome to Boston!
Border Control Agent: What’s your reason for visiting Boston, sir?
Me: I’m here to attend a convention.
Agent: What convention?
Me: A convention of young people in Alcoholics Anonymous.
Agent: Why would you come all this way for that? (Momentary pause, followed by embarrassed realization) “Never mind. Enjoy your visit!”
This actually happened to me as I came into the country for the MSCYPAA 16 Convention.
