I'm Getting Old

Its just a reality, I know.

But, I actually found myself in a conversation the other day where I was arguing that the driving age should be raised to 18.

I remember when I was 15 and there were rumors of raising the driving age. That scared my little 15 year old heart. Now, I think of how irresponsible I was behind the wheel between ages 16-18...irresponsibilities I won't even get into now. I just try to forget about them.

Now don't get me wrong, I did some pretty stupid stuff in a car after hitting 18, but still. I just think it would make the roads a safer place for all involved if we got those youngsters off the road.

See? Old.


  1. I agree - I think you are dancing on the fence of the old category... :) that's OK though there are something you just reconsider when you have another life (or two) that you are responsible for

  2. Older- and wiser! I completely agree that the driving age should be raised to 18. And smoking to 19. And everything, generally. 18 year olds aren't adults - many of them are still in high school! And I'm only 23... call me old fashioned, I guess. ;)
