Anise milk! It's an insult!

Anise milk! It's an insult!
Back then, there wasn't a joint office of Rites for all species. So I ran away from home and walked to a Gnome town.
Uh.... Ritekontoret, takk?
<snicker>∂arr...
I found an office there. The Gnomian clerk just looked me up and further up.... And then, he said...
I'm going to ask you how old you are, and you're not going to lie, and I'll tell you when you can come back.
...And then he gave me a cup of hot anise milk and had me brought back to my mother.
Hmmm... got your file here...
It says you finally got a post in 990, when you were fifteen...
Hee hee! That haircut!
The minimum age for gnomes.
And that was insulting! Having to follow Gnomian rules! The faeries don't even ask about that! I took the most difficult post I could get, just to show'em!
