I've been a legal adult for almost 3 years now, and I have yet to do any of the flashy things associated with coming of age. To date I have: acted as an adult at a church youth camping event; watched an R rated movie; purchased a knife. I have not purchased spray paint, cigarettes, lottery tickets, plane tickets, a hotel room, pornography, or gone to a bar or club. On one hand, I do want to make use of this "freedom," but I know that as soon as I get into a club or bar, I'll want to leave. Also, the rest don't really appeal to me. So really, why would I look forward to coming of age?
