    Positive OC experience in Lincoln

    Hello all, Last week, I went into the NH Liquor Outlet in Lincoln while OC'ing. The guy working the counter said while smiling, "hey, what have you got for a 'piece'?" I had to laugh inside about the choice of the word "piece." But anyway, after telling him what I had, he said something like...
