Frankie's 18th Birthday
I missed his actual birthday this year. Thinking back, I probably missed Nicky's birthday last year. He's a December baby, and December is CRAZY.
But here (belatedly) is a birthday party picture for Frankie. This year, we went to Bertucci's with a few of his friends and family. 18 is a big year.
Why is 18 a big year???
For one thing, when I called the insurance company to question one of his medical bills, they told me that they could only speak to him. Because he's 18. A legal adult.
They also said that if we don't PAY his doctor bills, it goes on HIS credit rating. (WOO HOO!) (JK)
18 year olds in New Jersey can buy lottery tickets, but they can't gamble in Atlantic City because they serve liquor.
I hear that 18 year olds can go to strip clubs -- the real nude ones -- because those kinds of strip clubs serve juice, not liquor. The other kind of strip bars, where the girls don't get completely nude, serve liquor, so you must be 21.
18 year olds can get a tattoo. They can join the military.
Today, he went to the Division of Motor Vehicles. He updated his license, so it is no longer a provisional license. He no longer has a curfew or a limit to the number of passengers in his vehicle. (He still has a curfew according to his mother.)
