The only thing I can think of is underage drinking.
There was one particular incident a while back. I was visiting my girlfriend at her college, about an hour away from where I was living.
I drank to loosen up. I’m straight-laced and socially uncomfortable—but I was surrounded by people who didn’t have any preconceived notions of who I was. I could drink and get buzzed and no one thought anything of it.
I drove that hour home, buzzed.
At the time, I was working for public safety, and driving was key to the job. If I would have lost my license or been suspended, I would have lost my job. It could have had a domino effect, stopping me from being with you here today.
