Yeah, I guess so. As the old joke goes, I knew I’d get old; I just didn’t expect it to happen so fast.
Back in 1986, The Pursuit of Happiness rocked Canada’s 20-somethings with “I’m an adult now” a comical look at the bewilderment of unexpectedly finding yourself to be an adult.
What could go wrong with a song that begins with
Well, I don’t hate my parents
I don’t get drunk just to spite them
I’ve got my own reasons to drink now
I think I’ll call my dad up and invite him
Now, 30 years later, I’m still an adult. And I don’t know how that happened.
