25 ways to tell if you have FINALLY grown up!!

My uncle, the one that had a heart attack NYE, is obviously feeling better as he continues to email 'funny' stuff.

I will add my own commentary at the end to a select few that I can relate to..


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/cat Science Diet instead of McDonald's leftovers.
15. Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt.
16. You take naps from noon to 6 PM
17. Dinner and a movie is the whole date instead of the beginning of one.[Dinner AND a Movie?? -- this is the anniversary date]
18. Eating a basket of chicken wings at 3 AM would severely upset, rather than settle, your stomach.
19. If you're a girl, you go to the drug store for ibuprofen and antacid, not condoms and pregnancy tests.
20. A $4.00 bottle of wine is no longer "pretty good stuff."
21. You actually eat breakfast food at breakfast time.
22. "I just can't drink the way I used to..." replaces "I'm never going to drink that much again."
23. 90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for real work.
24. When you find out your friend is pregnant you congratulate her
instead of asking "Oh S*$#! What Happened!?!?!?!"
25. 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 old butt.


2. The size of the bed doesn't matter
3. It varies, but there is only one bottle of wine and 1 beer in the fridge now.
4. I went to bed at 7am on New Years Day
6. I check it in the morning.
7. They are a gittin' hitched!
8. I get 3 weeks of vacation now.. plus 9 'holidays'
9. It doesn't?
11. *Shudder* I don't even want to think about this.. and I think I threw up in my mouth a little bit.. *ugh*
12. I never did.. haven't eaten at one in probably 7 yrs.
13. No car, no worries.. woohoo!
14. My cat doesn't like Science Diet. He prefers Holistic Cat food from Trader Joe's and he likes to drink out of the humidifier.
15. I have slept MANY of nights on the sofa and LOVE it!
16. Naps rawk!
19. Dare I admit that I go to the drugstore for Desitin, Aquaphor, A&D Ointment, ibuprofen, and acne cream? You wouldn't believe me if I said I what used all of these products for, so I won't even go there.
20. $8 wine is good.
21. I still eat breakfast for dinner sometimes. Omelets and pancakes are good at anytime of day!
22. The last time I said "I'm never going to drink that much again," which was in May, my father asked me "Didn't you say that last year?" I seem to say that everytime I drink with my college buds.. coincidence??? I'm still in denial that "I just can't drink the way I used to..." but I will test that theory out this weekend. Refer to #7.
23. I think that number is closer to 70%
24. This is what makes me feel old and that I'm growing up.

I have a long way to go before I'm "finally" grown up, and it has more to do with stuff not on this list.
