Which city did you grow up in?

If you visit ‘em at all.

12. You know what your mom is going to say when you ask if you can leave the block after dark.

13. But you sneak downtown anyway to try out your fake ID at the newest club.

14. Which…usually doesn’t go as planned.

15. But getting busted coming home? That’s a pretty sure bet.

Sneaking into an apartment is hard.

16. Though getting in trouble with your mom or pop can be the least of your worries.
