13 – First Communion. Afterward, was still sober, still sinful, and stillÂ inÂ Middle School.
16 – CanÂ legally drive. Before this, had doneÂ nothing bad with a car, and was not allowed license.Â After, ran over a gas station pump, was caught doing 95 in a 55, almost flew off an interstate sideways, and am allowed to keep license and drive more. Â
18 -Â First Election, first guaranty of legal intercourse. Party voted for lost. Remained good CatholicÂ for disgusting, long time.
Have yet to serveÂ jury duty.
21 – Could legally drink. Had drank since age 14 with no legalÂ penalties.Â Actual difference: less mooching, more being mooched off of.
25 – Can legally rent a car. Rented first car, almost died above Scranton, PA, was forced by company to pay hundreds in late fees. Because I almost died in their car. Will never doÂ this again.
Kids, you think it’s all bullshit, and you’re right. Do whatever you want.
