This is rather OT, I'm afraid, but I just had to say: Oh, thank God it's not just me! I had a friend yesterday saying that we were so different from when we met at 19, and my immediate reaction was, "...I'm not." I probably am, in a hundred ways, but as glad as I am to not be an adolescent anymore and at everyone else's mercy, I do often feel that this adult thing is a game of make-believe.
