Adulting is way less fun than being a kid. I'd take homework and chores over paying bills any day.
And that thought was exactly what was my "ah ha" moment of realizing adulthood. It was kind of a weird melecolie kind of moment without the tears. It was actually the first time I had ever thought being a kid wasn't so bad. But I did also think that I wouldn't have the same opportunities and privileges as being an adult. In years prior I had done plenty of things and had more than my share of rites of passage to qualify to most people. Being able to vote was probably the first things that would make most feel like an adult. That was quickly followed by being drafted, which was then followed by making the decision to shoot back at those who were shooting at me. Then buying a house, starting a family and burying my parents never really made me feel like I was an adult on their own. To me everything just seemed to be another drop in the bucket of life's experiences. It is not to say that there have been times when I would have been happier to only concern myself with eating a big bowl of cereal and watching sci-fi movies than dealing with a sick child or scrounging up the cash to fix a broken furnace. I think for most who really do grow up it all just kind of happens without any realization or fanfare.
Considering the way my schedule usually is I may be able to do a drive-by. Only because I am currently planning on being in Norwalk that Sunday.
Well, it looks like my maybe drive-by has turned into a likely no go.
.....and no Norwalk either.
@Mt_Goat, I respect your choices and life decisions as a fellow Texan, however as a driver of small cars that's been run off the road a few times I humbly request that you add wide-angle spots to your side-view mirrors. Not that you would ever fail to check your blind spots or signal before changing lanes; just to make checking them easier.
You will be comforted to know that my new ride is equipped with blind spot warning, total vehicle surround sensing and cross traffic warning technologies. That combined with my better than Bubba Redneck driving skills I hope will keep us as well as others safe. The only ones who have to worry are those who piss me off. Then what ever supreme being they cotton to will not be able to help them.
