I didn’t mean to imply he was sensible. He just learned (after being evicted from his senior prom, which led to being benched on the soccer team for which he was captain, resulting in a loss (but he did go on to score the winning goal at the state title game), and also dethroned as homecoming king) when to get wasted, and when not. Other than that, while he may be gifted and brilliant, he is hardly sensible. We have a paucity of adults in my family, myself included. I envy you (I think) for having one.
