I didn't hesitate - 18! You're finished high school, you're old enough to drive, gravity and stretch marks have not taken hold to your body, you have lots of energy, you're still living at home so you have no bills or major responsibilities, you can pass for legal drinking age and get into clubs, and no one tells you to act your age.
Then I started to think about it... at 18 forever.
18. Sure I could drive, but I had to ask permission to take the car. Stretch marks are a badge of honor, a sign of my daughter. Energy- isn't that what coffee if for? Still living at home - gulp. I hadn't met husband at 18...
Can I retract my answer? I don't want to be 18 forever. (maybe just for a few hours)
