Great time to be growing up, although I like to believe I still am. You could easily forge a different birth date on your drivers license, if you did drugs, it was probably pot and the worse thing that happend to you was you increased the profits of companies like Frito Lay. And, if in the rare instance you contracted a STD, one shot of penicilin and you were cured.
And it just dawned on me how life can be a 180 degree experience.
Now I get upset if I am offered a senior citizen discount without asking for my ID, the legal drugs I get from Medicare don't make me feel as good as the illegal ones I had to pay for, and if I get a STD, getting curd is not as important as remembering how I got it.
