A thing

Today the YoT turns 18. That means that apart from a couple of outlying things, he's legally an adult. For me, that means voting and being able to buy drugs over the counter, the capacity to enter a contract, and the requirement to be 'doing something'.

For some reason in his mind, it means he'll have to pay more tax. I have explained how this isn't actually the case, but he's pretty adamant that adulthood is about tax.

I hope this doesn't end up defining his adulthood.

Anyway, yeah. My kid, he's all growed up. I have successfully negotiated the reproduction minefield and turned out a pretty OK contribution to the future of the world.

Do I get to go back to being irresponsible now?
