Act One: Me at the Tijuana border. A customs guy looks at his x-ray machine and calls to me: “Sir? Is that tequila?” I reluctantly admit that it is not. Thus were my Green Fairy hopes dashed back in the summer of 2005.

Act Two: My parents make a small purchase for me while vacationing in Greece. Somehow they send it to me later in the mail. It tastes like anise, and it doesn’t make me go off the deep end, produce great works of art or literature–or kill anyone.

Act Three: The whole thing appears to be legal now. Perhaps I’ll try some of these newly available varieties. But perhaps not. Legality sort of sucks the mystery out of it and leaves you with nothing but green, licorice-flavored booze.
