The meaning of responsible …

A flash-back:

Pranni : Dad. I'm getting older, so I've to be responsible.
Dad : ???
Pranni : Here after give me the money, I'll take tickets in the bus whenever we are travelling.
Dad : But what made you think that you are grown up? You are still a kid.
Pranni : No. I got the letter from the school. I've been promoted to 6th standard. I'm no more elementary school boy. I'm grown up.

Few years later:
Pranni : Dad, I'm getting older, so I've to be responsible.
Dad : ???
Pranni : Here after when we go out in the moped, I'll be driving. You sit behind.

Looking back, I could laugh at the meanings of responsibility at different ages. Now that I'm 18 years old, the meaning of responsibility is really different. Especially after becoming a father of a cute little princess. May be years later I'll be laughing at this meaning too. But till I get another meaning, let me be "responsible" :-)
