I may be bordering on trolling (? trying to figure this one out) with my 
insecurity here, but now I should be good to go, right?

[:: command line clip ::]

root at kayve-laptop:/etc# pwd
root at kayve-laptop:/etc# cat sudoers
# /etc/sudoers
# This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.
# See the man page for details on how to write a sudoers file.

Defaults	env_reset
Defaults 	rootpw

# Host alias specification

# User alias specification

# Cmnd alias specification

# User privilege specification
root	ALL=(ALL) ALL

# Uncomment to allow members of group sudo to not need a password
# (Note that later entries override this, so you might need to move
# it further down)

# Members of the admin group may gain root privileges
%admin ALL=(ALL) ALL
root at kayve-laptop:/etc#
