    I always thought it should be something special, unfortunately, my 18th was fairly uneventful and boring, like all my other birthdays.

    I was wondering if any of you had any wild or crazy 18th birthday parties, share your stories here! :cool

    I for one couldn't wait till 18,
    Why
    I had no home as my parents split 6 mos earlier
    and both moved away. But the house was still standing
    minus elec. So I stayed their till my 18th BD
    Then i joined the Army so I could have a place to live.
    And I have no regrets at all.

    I truly can't remember what was happening on my 18th B-day.

    I was stoned from 1968 - 1974. The entire period is a blur! :rofl

    I had some friends over at my place to play poker and drink Jack Daniels while cigarettes dangled from our mouths. I thought I hit the big time, then I realized it was time to really start acting like an adult as the responsibilities just continued to pile up.

    No the photo was taken a couple of years later, at my 21st B'day party. Everyone always tells me I look very young for my age.:)

    It was pretty uneventful. My mom was working on her college degree and was too busy to bake me a cake or plan anything. I spent most of the evening waiting for my boyfriend to show up but he never did. I found out later that he had spent the evening playing basketball, and that he didn't care that he missed my birthday because he was only using me for sex.

    Damn, that's sad Puss. What a bummer.

    :toastOn my 18th birthday I learned I'd better not have spontaneous beer parties in the house without specific permission from my Mom.:hoppingmad
    That was when 18 was beer and wine age in SC.

    My 18th was just as crumy as my 21st....

    There were nice bars in the windows and a nice solid steel door that opened from the outside only.
    Great birthdays to forget.

    Lets see here, it wasn't that long ago. If I remember right, on my 18th birthday I was engaged for A month and a day, and I got to see my fiance that day...in fact, I believe we had sex pretty much all day. Yep. Probably six to eight hours worth of it. Interspersed with a few moments of getting gifts from my dad, an electric guitar and amp, and a very beautiful Celtic inlaid box from my fiance. I liked it a lot, and still have it within 20ft of me right now.

    My 18th rocked. My fiance and I got engaged on that day, officially, so it was really awesome. We watched a pink floyd concert on DVD, and had a generally great time. About a week later, we celebrated some more by going to a Moody Blues concert with my family.

    I buried my ex girlfriend's family dog.

    We had plans to go out and have a fun night, just the two of us, however when I went over to pick her up she was a little worried. Turns out he dog had lost mobility of her back legs and was extremely defensive, which concerned them because she was the nicest dog for over a decade.

    After some rough persuasion we got her in the van and drove her to the vets. The vet said we'd be lucky to wake up in the morning and she still be alive. She had multiple blood clots that were non repairable. They put her down around 8pm that night.

    We drove back to my ex's house, everybody sobbing. Her dad and I walked up the hill and dug a hole. By this point it was 9 pm. It took us 4 hours to dig a hole, due to the extreme amount of rock that was imbedded in their land. We had to use heavy duty shovels and a couple digging irons to get through it all.

    When it was all said and done around 1 am, I walked in the kitchen to wash my hands. I thought I was sweating really bad, which I was, however the fluid I felt on my hands wasn't sweat. It was blood. I developed blisters so bad in those 4 hours of constant digging iron throwing to bust up the rock that the blisters wore through so many layers of skin they just bled a good bit, however it was just that damn dark I had no idea.

    Despite the fact me and this girl I was dating have split after a 5 year relationship, her older brother and I are best friends, and I still talk to her family on and off.
