The First Thing I Did When I Turned 18

The other day a few of the teachers at our school were standing around after class talking and we somehow got on the topic of what we did when we turned eighteen. It was a sound explosion of “I got my first tattoo.” “I got my fifth tattoo – long story”, “I got my nose pierced”, “I drove to the wrong part of town to a party where I…” etc. I just stood there. After the the cacophony of ink, needles and alcohol died down. I told my sad little tale.

The morning I turned eighteen I registered to vote.

And look where it got us!

I should have gotten a tattoo instead.
