25 Ways To Tell You Are Grown Up

Good Tuesday...Yahoo...American Idol tonight! Oh, btw...when you get to the bottom of the list, there are two missing *snort*...and they're going to stay missing!

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.) 6:00AM is when you get up, not 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 'hookup' and 'breakup'.

8.) You go from 140 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. (And the word stereo dates you too, because there's no such animal any more!)

11.) Older relatives feel comfortable telling sex jokes around you.

12.) You don't know what time Taco Bell closes any more.

13.) Your car insureance 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 3:00AM would severely upset, rather than settle, your stomach.

19.) You go to drugstore for ibuprofen and antacids, instead of condoms and pregnancy tests.

20.) You actually eat breakfast food and breakfast time.

21.) "I just can't drink the way I used to do", replaces "I'm never going to drink that much again!"

22.) 90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for real work. (Welllll!)

And last but not least in Ways to tell that you've grown up.

23.) You read the entire list looking desperately for one sign that doesn't apply to you and can't fins one to save your sorry old butt!

    I had never even heard of the phrase "hook up" as a term to describe relationships until my 30th high school reunion.

    Sad. So sad.

    BTW, did you know your blog looks really strange on the Mac in Safari? It looks as though the layout lost all its connections to its css, and all that's left is left-justified text. It always looked so nice in the past. E-mail me at qe24 at cox dot net and I'll send you a screenshot.
