I Should be Grown Up But ...... ;-)

25 Signs That You've Grown Up for Good:

1. Your houseplants are alive, and you can't smoke any of them.
2. Having sex in a twin bed is out of the question.
3. You keep more food than beer in the fridge.
4.6:00 AM is when you get up, not when you go to bed.
5. You hear your favorite song in an elevator.
6. You watch the Weather Channel.
7. Your friends marry and divorce instead of "hook up" and "break up."
8. You go from 130 days of vacation time to 14.
9. Jeans and a sweater no longer qualify as "dressed up."
10. You're the one calling the police because those %&@# kids next door won't turn down the stereo.
11. Older relatives feel comfortable telling sex jokes around you.
12. You don't know what time Taco Bell closes anymore.
13. Your car insurance goes down and your car payments go up.
14. You feed your dog Science Diet instead of McDonald's leftovers.
15. Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt.
16. You take naps.
17. Dinner and a movie is the whole date instead of the beginning of one.
18. Eating a basket of chicken wings at 3 AM would severely upset, rather than settle, your stomach.
19. You go to the drug store for ibuprofen and antacid, not condoms and pregnancy tests.
20. A $4.00 bottle of wine is no longer "pretty good sh_t."
21. You actually eat breakfast food at breakfast time.
22. "I just can't drink the way I used to" replaces "I'm never going to drink that much again."
23. 90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for real work.
24. You drink at home to save money before going to a bar.
25. When you find out your friend is pregnant you congratulate them instead of asking "Oh sh_t, what the hell happened?"
26: You read this entire list looking desperately for one sign that doesn't apply to you and can't find one to save your sorry ass. ;-)

Odat said...

LMAO...Pillow spray (or linen spray) comes in lots of scents(I usually buy mine at Bath and Body Works) It comes in lots of scents. I usually use lavendar..cause it relaxes me. But you can buy scents that are supposed to make you feel "chipper" for those times ya need to feel that way! ;-)

I don't know wheter to laugh or cry! I guess I'm not grown up but somewhere in the middle... I hope I stay here! lol ~M

"4.6:00 AM is when you get up, not when you go to bed."

Bahaha. that's my favourite one on there!

Claudia said...

hehe...luckily...I'm still not completely grown up!

Janet C. said...

Not one applies to me!

Michael C said...

#8 is the one that gets me most!!

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

"chipper" huh...last time i saw a chipper it was in a sawmill. y'all talk funny.... bee

CSL said...

Hmmm, some fit, some don't. Not sure what that says about me. I've taken naps as long as I can remember, and anyone who has received a 3 am email from me knows about my crazy sleep habits.

Oh, and gald to see I wasn't the only one thrown by the pillow spray.

Pickled Olives said...

Yeah, I am not quite an adult!

ShadowFalcon said...

being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up. My friends are still shocked that I manage to start work at 7:30am cos when they lived with me I used to get in at that time!

Just-Me-Jen said...

Great post - I linked to it on my own blog. I love the kitty pic, too!

ROFL about all the pillow spray confusion!!!
People, it's aromatherapy - you spray it on your bedpillow, and you can choose a scent that relaxes you, or perks you up, or just something you like. I used to spray cologne on my pillows, just 'cause I liked it.

Skittles said...

Grown up.. as opposed to being mature? :)

Crankster said...

I see a lot of myself in this list, but my relatives are still uncomfortable telling me sex jokes, and some of them even cringe when I pull out my award-winning "rabbi and Senator from Utah" collection.
