A funny thing happened on the way to becoming an adult.
First: I didn't become an adult.
Yes, I can vote, and drink, and even drive cars (though, not rented ones-- YET!). I can also live on my own and be trusted-- by the government? My mother? Whom actually passes that trust to me? Can't answer that; too busy capitalizing on Adult Right #2 in the first list of three you'll find at the beginning of this paragraph-- anyways, live on my own and be trusted to not die while doing so.
