This tells me that 27 is simply considered “adult”. Plain old adult.

This also meshes with my experience for it was at 27 that I started getting called “mister” and “sir” by younger people (usually wanting me to buy them cigarettes or beer, which was common in my neighborhood).

I didn’t but I didn’t blame them for trying. So is there a face structure change around there? Did I carry myself differently? I don’t know. But suddenly being “sir and “hey mister” instead of “Hey”, or “hey bro” or “Dude” was a shift in how I was perceived.

You can see the “man” in my face even though it was still “boyish”.
