It’s been a week now since my 21st birthday, and I have to say, I’ve learned somethings. Things they don’t tell you that you feel. I feel…things. Here’s a list of what I’ve learned so far.
1. Beer is GROSS
Surely not ALL beer is gross. But I’ve never been that person who downs an entire beer then says, “WOOOOO MORE! BEER! YA!” If anyone actually even says that…It tastes like straight up booty butt. What is booty butt? You ask? It’s something gross. Uh, yeah.
2.Wine Taste Like Cherry Cough Syrup
(I HATE CHERRIES!!!) LOL Ok, Story time. When I was little, my dad used to give us this cherry cough medicine when we’d get sick. It was so gross, it actually SCARRED me for life. I know, first world probz. ANDDD TV shows have led me to believe that wine is sophisticated and sexy. What’s sexy about it, if I’m making this face while drinking it?!
3. BOYZ BUY DRINKS FOR YOU?!
Weird. I thought a boy’s way of flirting was making a singing vine for you then making a double chin face at the end…BUT THIS IS COOL TOO. While I was in Tempe, (ASU college land) I was meeting some of my mom’s co-workers at a hotel. YES, I WAS WITH MY MOM, BUT HEAR ME OUT FIRST!!! Ok, I can’t come back from that. But basically, the bartender heard I turned 21m and whipped out this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle drink for me. I hardly think he was flirting. But if he was,
4. Parents Look At You Differently
It’s all fun and games till you hit 21. The first thing my parents told me was, “okay…you’re 21 now! Officially a grown up!” Grown..u..p? Grown up? I’m grown up. Grown up I am. I can’t live with my parents 4evr?!!?! Okay, I get it…time to get my “ish” together!
5. I feel FREE!
No more age restrictions! No more, “Can I see your ID? Sorry, you’re not old enough.” “Come out with us!! Oh wait, you’re not 21 yet? Sorry…” “21 and OVER ONLY!!” FINALLY! I feel like I’ve finally be let out of this tower called, “Underaged”. 😀
