Drink from big-boy cup

Emerge nude, from a large, hollow cake, into an empty, cavernous banquet hall

Have sexual relations while listening to "Crazy Train"

Dismount the mechanical bull you've been riding for 28 years

End a business transaction with the words "No condom, no yum-yum"

Solo on your steel drums in public

Patiently explain to your elderly uncle what genderf*cking is all about

Be the first person in your family to pass a Breathalyzer test knee-deep in a swamp

Get trampled by hogs

Give a PowerPoint presentation without being steadied by angel dust

Mail The Golden Child back to Netflix

Walk around Disney World clutching a samurai sword

Cheer up a sick child by wearing a clown nose fashioned from a red enema ball

Feel the rush of breaking your back in a trampoline accident

Dance like nobody's watching or laughing or throwing garbage at you

Tug frantically at emergency chute

Become of member of Greyhound Bus Line's infamous "36-Inch-High Club"

Spend a crisp fall day buying panties from a Japanese vending machine

Be the first in the neighborhood to flee from an encroaching minority group

Volunteer to be the first citizen in space with a severe inner-ear problem

Ask for a raise. And then a job.

Blast the shit out of House of Pain's "Jump Around"

Design the perfect cape

Tell your in-laws how much you love them and need them to invest in your frozen-yogurt business

Visit Martha's Vineyard and talk to Carly Simon about stuff

Stow away behind the amps on a Sammy Hagar Cabo Wabo Around-The-World Cruise

Visit Walden Pond and laconically masturbate in a canoe

Forgive Bono

Really get your delts looking super-tight

Let someone besides your bookie cut your hair

Join the Klan- but only attend the barbecues and toy drives

Just once, really jam on the funk
