I remeber some of being 18. Some is a little, shall we say, hazey....

I know how you fell, though. When I turned 18 I was already legal because back then it was "Old enough to serve, old enough to drink" (PV2 in the Texas Army National Guard). So, the only excitement really was to be able to saay I was 18.

Being 18 you can vote and die for your country. When I turned 18, I could drink legally. too bad for you.. You can rent a car....you can enter some contests that you couldn't before. You are legally an ADULT....

18 is the best, your a legal adult which means you can do a lot of things you couldn't do yesterday. Happy Birthday or belated birthday if this is a day later.


BTW, I thought you were much older

Aaron - Thats one of the best things, I finally get to vote! w00t! And I don't smoke, so thats kinda not helping lol.

Peter - Yeah, and in Canada too EH?

Tony - Definitely. I can't be a kid anymore.

Agrazela (I'm realizing I don't know your name lol) - NO kidding. Better not screw up! lol. But umm, in wisconsin, you're usually tried as an adult at 17 anyways, so I've been watching my *** for a while lol

Bman104 (ALSO don't know yours) - HELLLLL YEAH lmao. Now I just gotta come up with some money so I can go there and have some REAL fun.

Chris - Yeah, I think you might have, but I didn't check that thread, that was dah toasty thread. And lmao, actually, you're almost right, I'm actually fixing my car BEFORE I leave simply because my mom needs to borrow it when I'm gone lol.

Brian - No kidding, these cats are sharp!

John - umm. So you turned 18 in..what year? 1492?

Skippy - hah, yes, I can do both of those, it sucks I cant drink legally yet, but oh well. I actually CAN'T rent a car, I can rent one at 21, but with an extra fee, and then the fee goes away at 25. I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure thats accurate.

Will - Hah, yeah, I guess so. I can FINALLY say I'm an adult I guess. Its just a little less...fanfare...ish than I thought it would be. And yeah, everyone does, even people I talk to all the time are like, OH yeah, thats right, I forgot...I guess I act much older than I am. Most people say that my personality could pass for 30 easy. I guess I just look too much like a kid to pass for it in real life.

Thanks again guys...I'm just waiting here for the car to cool down so I can replace the plugs, o2 sensor, and master cylinder. Just sitting here gappin the spark plugs. :P
