Yeah I remember my 21st birthday. Didn't do the 21 shots or anything. Went to a Mexican restaurant, ordered a giant alcholic drink. Didn't get carded. Went to a liquor store and bought a bunch of crap that I didn't even end up drinking. Didn't get carded. Of course, I MADE them card me at the liquor store after I bought and they gave me some free shots (those small bottles).
Kind of a problem when you're 21 and look 27. I'm 25 now, but I had a middle-school aged kid (friends daughter) think I was late 30's a few months back... that's a bit exagerrated in my opinion, but geez.
I was at a party last weekend and the guy looked not a day over 23 or 24... he was 40...
Is it genetic or what? I don't get it.
