Remember that other awkward age, when you were a teenager dying to get out from under the yoke, the shadow, the roof or the gaze of your parents? When all you wanted was to be left alone with 15 or 20 of your closest friends and a case of beer some guy's older brother brought to the lake?

Many senior apartment complexes and condos have age restrictions for residents. The bottom of that floor is usually 55 or 62, which in the 21st century means just broken-in, rather than broken-down.
