Basha, what in the world is a "king seat"? And is "dog in a king seat" some sort of figurative expression, or is it, literally, a dog, in whatever the heck a "king seat" is?

Just teasing - sorry if I offended you. Just that a "Saloon" is where we go to drink booze. A "Salon" is where you go to get your hair done, & other personal care stuff...
Kinda funny, I thought...

To carry the analogy, I'd say teenagers are caterpillars. In them, you can begin to see what they might become as adults, but not until they go into the cocoon of college and work and independence do they really become the person they're going to be.
Personally, although being a teenager and young adult was fun, I prefer where I am now. You don't really live until you stop spending your time trying to impress other people. I'm sure there are many people who learn this in their teens and early 20s, but the social pressure is definitely greater during those years. I needed to live through a terrible boss and a worse boyfriend before I could figure out who I was. Those things take time.
