I know that we are not all perfect.
I am close to being perfect, but have a few slight imperfections.
WHAT I DID and got CAUGHT...
2 bad things. hahahahaha
Well, i got caught...turned myself in.....sort of.
-date july 4 and 5 1976
-location boston's esplanade pops concert
my age was 21 (so i was an adult and KNEW better)
Went to the concert at the Esplanade early morning July 4.
Was with a bunch of my ski buddies.
We drank all day. We swam in the charles river. I do not know how we survived and did not drown being as loaded as we were. AND...the river was filthy.
After the concert, I got separated from my friends and got on the wrong train T to go back to where my car was parked....Riverside Sta in Newton, Ma.
Wound up on a train and then a bus in Revere Ma....no where near Newton.
Was so intoxicated, that a policeman brought me in, I HAD to call my parents.
Mom and Dad picked me up in Revere at 3 am on July 5.
Yes, it is possible to be grounded at age 21.
The other incident of course involved alcohol.
I was 17 and it was Memorial Day weekend 1973. The drinking age was 18 and i was 1 week away from being 18 and graduating high school.
We were in Falmouth (on the cape) and my friends were all allowed into Brothers, a drinking and dance place on the beach. I was too young by a week....so i climbed onto the roof of the place in order to sneak in thru an open window or upper deck. Well the roof was shoddy and i fell thru.
Again, i had a nice meeting with the nice Falmouth police officers as did my parents and I did a summer of community service in Falmouth AND lost the privilege of living away at college that was upcoming. I had to be a commuter for the Fall.
Thank God I never had to go to court and was not technically "arrested".
The worst in both instances was facing my parents.
