The French Connection 

Went out for a wonderful dinner with Jeanne & Larry (my advisors) and the two French visitors (let's say X and Y) who are visiting my lab. Red wine was ordered. The server asked X for his id. Y was spared the trouble. On the way back X, Y and I were traveling in the same car and this interesting conversation took place.

Y: Sagnik, what is the legal drinking age in California?
Me: 21.
Y: Wow! X, you look really young for them to ask you for an id.
Me: Actually, the menu said that they ask any guy younger than 30 for an id.
Y: Wow! I look really old for them to not ask me for an id.

Amusing :)
