The Big Two One
Ladies and gentlemen, I turned twenty-one yesterday. Twenty-one doesn't feel terribly different than twenty if we're just being honest - but there is something to be said about the liberating feeling of being able to drink alcohol in public legally.
I went to dinner with my friends at a local Mexican restaurant. Missile bought my dinner, one of my friends from high school drove down from Coeur d'Alene, and the waiters made me wear a sombrero while they sang happy birthday and made me take a shot.
Today I renewed my driver's license and now I am part of the grown up world. I am no longer classified as a portrait style sort of person but I have been welcomed into the sideways world of landscape licenses! Oh the freedom!
I will celebrate with my family this weekend when I go home to drink Mike's Hard Lemonade and eat Garlic Jim's pizza like a champ. And hopefully get to open some gifts while I'm at it. You know, obligatory birthday stuff and the like.
Maybe throw in a tattoo?
Just kidding, Dad.
But maybe. ;-)
