American Madness - Part II

My colleague and I were wandering in the direction of the hotel bar one evening and I offered to buy him a drink. He was feeling rather thirsty and decided that he would like to start with a mere orange juice. Strangely enough, I was thirsty but decided that a beer was in order!

"Good evening, how's your day goin'?"

The attractive young girl behind the bar was obviously trying hard to make the question sound sincere.

"Fine, could I have a beer and an orange juice please?" I asked.

"Yeah, sure". She proceeded to pull me a pint of Heineken but stopped half-way up the glass. Uh-oh, I thought!

"You did want this half and half, didn't you?"

(It is me?)
