but hey, they are young, nothing can ever happen to them. I was their age
once. I think.
Yeah, me too. When I finally got my driver's license, at age 15, I
developed a little game I played often: I tried to see how close I could
come to parked cars in my right. I swear it must have been a few inches in
several cases. Braindead at age 15, and revived much later. No, was not
drinking. Hate to think what would have happened had I been. Once when a
freshman in college, we went over the bridge where there were no blue
laws. Drank about fifteen beers and decided to chug a half pint of rum on
the way back to the dorm. Woke up a few hours later having vomited all
over myself - was supine. Stood in the shower fully clothed and felt lower
than whale shit. Truly a miracle that I did not aspirate it and die right
there. Did that stop me? Hah. I quit drinking age 56. High IQ does not
equal having other kinds of intelligence.
