Subject: RE: BS: When do you become a grownup? (Study)
I think it began the first time I had to pay for my own clothes, decide what they would be and decide for myself when to get them. Socially it really started the first time I was in charge of other people -- a terrifying thought, at first, having to make public decisions of rightness and wrongness and stand by them. I guess I've gotten used to it now, more than thirty years later. I mean, how do you KNOW?
But like the thermos bottle, eventually it comes naturally. Just remember to keep the hot things hot and the cold things cold and all will be well.
