That is a colorful metaphor. I like it.
Meanwhile I have a friend having day surgery on Thursday and she needs a designated "responsible adult" to be assigned to drive her home and keep an eye on her for awhile. So I got recruited.
I remember many chunks of my life where I could have been called a lot of things but not "responsible adult." But now check me out - I am the responsible adult.
I feel like I want to make up business cards.
This is another excellent thread. 5 stars.
