    Present: I get to do it.
    I have been given the opportunity or permission to do something.

    Past: I got to do it.
    I was given the opportunity or permission to do something.

    Note, I got to do it has two meanings:

    1) I have to ~ must do it.
    2) I was given the opportunity or permission to do something.
