How I Know I'm an "Adult" and Not Still 9 Years Old, No. 1: Not only did I wait an entire week after being given a candy necklace (at Pride) to consider eating it, but I paused before indulging to check the calories (a mere 77!) and then stopped after the first few chomps to make sure it didn't contain, like, meat ("Necklaces contain none of the following: gluten (from wheat, honey, oats and rye), milk, egg, fish, Crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, wheat, peanuts or soybeans"). And then and only then did I put it around my neck and resume.
