It wasn't even the case that they were drunk and making a nuisance of themselves. They were just a group of people having fun and apparently you can only have fun at the pepper lounge if you're the right color. And if that's your thing, hey go for it.
You don't realize it, but ever since French class you've been preparing to drink Chambord, the black raspberry French liqueur of royalty, bottled in the Loire Valley for more than 300 years (and now arriving to you by way of a gaudy vessel only royalty could love). Because you know how to speak the language of love, your love for the finer things in life has grown exponentially.
