It's official.

#1 Son is no longer 17 and Surly.

He is 18 and Edgy? Maybe

18 and Enormously Pompous? Only sometimes.

18 and Earnest? No, no him.

18 and Enough? He certainly thinks so.

18 and Eager? Yes, but sometimes for the wrong things.

18 and Ebullient? No, more of a laid back type.

18 and Eccentric? Well, aren't we all, just a little?

18 and Economical? Absolutely not, he's costing more than ever.

18 and Ecstatic? Again, he is too laid back for that term.

18 and Educated? He has a diploma, yes, but there is too much life still has to teach him.

18 and Egomaniacal? Well, egocentric maybe.

That's it. I'll use 18 and Egocentric, unless a better term comes along before next year.
