Today is the day
that I end my 21st year. It is now legal for me to go get drunk
out of my mind, just as long as I don't drive
, or beat anyone, or do anything too stupid
. The only thing I can think of that I am still prevented from doing, by virtue of my age
, is being President
. I suppose that might upset me, if I had any plans towards world domination
. And, of course, I can no longer eat off of the children's menu
(tho some restaurants
are rather nice about that, if you prefer the smaller portions of simpler food
..), I no longer pay children's rates, I am no longer allowed by society
to be childish
and simply call it my right. However, I am still (I hope) childlike
. That's my goal
. Child-like but not childish.
For the first time since this whole "being a grown-up" thing started, I don't feel like I'm playing grown-up. I supposed this means that I maybe really am a grown-up. That's scary, in and of itself. Oh well.. Yes. Today I turn 21.
