    Part 1: mortgage payments and alcoholic beverages.

    Part 2: Milk Duds [very sticky candy that sticks to dental work] and days without hair styling [it was easier to have naturally curly hair when no one expected it to be combed and balanced into something each day]

    I am sitting here stunned, having to think if I am grown up yet. I don’t feel grown up, but people keep assuming I am by the looks of me, so I guess I get to have something. Cigarettes and coffee?
    What can I not have? Really there isn’t anything, except for the way I used to be able to fling myself about the world and now that makes me want a nap, just thinking about it.

    Part one: Chewing gum and fizzy drinks on days other than special occasions.

    Part two: Going bra-less and banana-flavoured medicine (not that I’ve tried asking…)

    Now that you are a grown-up you are allowed to have stabilisers for your mood swings and a car with three pedals.

    Now that you are a grown-up you are not allowed to have stabilisers on your bike or a car that you pedal.

    Now that you are a grown-up you are allowed to have a modicum of control over those that control you and a big stack of bills that no-one else will pay for you.

    Now that you are a grown-up you are not allowed to have a story read to you at bedtime and spend many long weeks of summer playing about by the river.

    Part one: a faceful of makeup (only now I realise it looks cheap), and killer heels (only now I realise where the “killer” comes in – the pain of blisters!!)

    Part two: days-of-the-week knickers, and races down the High Street at 5.00 am on roller skates. The police only gave me a verbal row for doing that when I was a child. Now they’d lock me up.

    1. Corn flakes for dinner, and the means to say ‘who cares’ and mean it when people judge you.

    2. A first time fishing by the river, and a sleepover for your birthday.

    Hey, wait. Didn’t I already leave my silly answer here?

    I’ve read all those answers and I’m too depressed by having lived the ensuing years to remember what my answer was. Can I go back to childhood? Just for a while?
