Do you know, I cannot once recall, in my entire life, having "partied".
Frankly, the concept is beyond me. I think the closest I've ever come
is going to science-fiction conventions. I suppose I can imagine a
ceremony wherein, once I'm old enough to order alcohol, I drink a Coke.

If I go to the Foresight Fall Gathering, my 21st birthday will occur on
12:00 AM Monday, right after the Gathering.
